Support our school – Personalized Haggadot!

From our Education Committee Co-Chairs:

We are writing to you today to ask for your participation in a very cool fundraiser that is being organized by the MVHC Religious School.
We know that many of us are buried deep in too much snow, but before you know it….Passover will be here! Did you know that the first night is Friday, April 3rd? You can make your Seder a little more special this year with personalized Haggadot. Each Haggadah can be customized with a first or last name, or you can go with the non-personalized version. Or you can mix it up by getting one for each family member (with the first name) and then additional Haggadot for your guests (with your last name). Or if you already know who you are inviting to your Seder, then get each guest their own personalized Haggadah! The options are limitless… Simply order at http://www.personalizedhaggadah.com. Orders must be received by March 13th in order to ensure pre-Passover delivery.

Now to the fundraising part….each Haggadah that you purchase will benefit the MVHC Religious School! Simply order at http://www.personalizedhaggadah.com and select “Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center” during the online check-out. You will receive your beautiful family keepsake and we will receive 20% of your Haggadah sale. Each Haggadah is $11.50 and you can preview it in its entirety by going here: http://www.personalizedhaggadah.com/pageflip/haggadah_loader.html.

Please help us make this a successful fundraiser by ordering your Haggadot today!

Your support is GREATLY appreciated,

Melissa Kagan & Jennifer Marcus, co-chairs of the Education Committee



Today in honor of Tu B’Shvat we were visited by naturalist Gus Ben David.
The fundamental focus of Tu BShvat is of course trees, but the preciousness of all nature is honored.
Please come to shul this weekend!

Ask your kids to tell you the details about the photos below:
