Friday to Sunday, Jan. 23-25
Beth Schafer has redefined Jewish music by combining masterful songwriting with sensitivity to liturgy and unique insight toward text. A trained guitarist with degrees in Music Theory and Composition from the University of Miami School of Music, Beth writes songs for Torah-minded adults seeking to extend their Jewish lives through music. Beth’s infectious energy, well-crafted songs, and intelligent lyrics have made her a leading presence in the Jewish music world. Yet, her music invokes universal themes, and her fans include people of many faiths who have found her messages and music meaningful and inspiring. This program is brought to us thanks to the generosity of the Myrna Jacobs Music Performance Fund.
Sunday, Jan. 25, 8:45 a.m. Cañada and Edgewood Roads
Please join us for an informal, Kolot-inspired bicycle ride on the last Sunday of each month. We will roll promptly at 8:45 a.m. from Cañada and Edgewood Roads. The social-paced rides will be 25-35 miles in length, include moderate climbs such as Old La Honda and (east) Alpine Road, and have several regroups. Helmets required; rain cancels.

Family-to-Family is a beautiful way for you to reach out and help others less fortunate during the holidays. You can “adopt” an entire family, or just purchase gifts for an individual family member. Here’s how it works:
1. Click here for the web page specific to PTS.
2. Browse the list of people and their wishes.
3. Select the item/s you wish to donate by clicking the button underneath the item.
4. After you have purchased the item/s (suggested value for the gift cards: $25+), please bring it/them to PTS and place the tagged item/s with the name and age of the person you adopted in the bins in the Temple foyer designated for the location (Jewish Family Children Services or Shelter Network).
The items must be unwrapped, and tagged with the individual's LOCATION, FAMILY NUMBER, NAME, and AGE attached.
The last day to donate is December 14.
Thank you for reaching out to help someone who truly needs your help!
