Or Chadash Ski Club
You probably know that Or Chadash is the home of Reform Judaism in Hunterdon County. Did you also know that for many years it has also been the home to the OC Ski Club? The OC Ski Club provides an opportunity to get group rates for skiing for our members and their friends while also contributing to OC. The OC SKi Club is a wonderful way to enjoy the winter, and spend time with friends. We hope you will join us.
What/Where: Skiing/boarding with family and friends is a fabulous way to enjoy the winter, and Shawnee Ski Area offers great prices. You can select from a wide range of packages/options including lift ticket, equipment rental and lesson packages ranging from $140 - $235. Both skiers and boarders are welcome.

A time to help our neighbors...
As you all know, Or Chadash is a sponsor Temple for Family Promise (formerly IHN). This means that twice a year we host the families who are homeless from our county and are staying in houses of worship for shelter. We partner with the Flemington Presbyterian Church and, for two nights, for each stay at that church, we visit with the families, share dinner with them and spend the night at the church.
Leslie Hann, who oversees the Chesed (Caring) Community, reports that all the day and overnight shifts have been filled!! All that is left open are the two 4 hour shifts on Christmas Day.
We have the following time slots that need to be filled by at least 2 members for each shift: Thursday, December 25 (Christmas Day) from 8 AM - Noon Thursday, December 25 (Christmas Day ) from Noon - 5 PM
This is a great chance to help people from our community in need. Children are allowed to participate, although each session needs at least 2 people of driving age in case of emergencies. Also, for any students looking for service hours, this is a great way to earn them.

A Scrip Reminder:
Announcing a way to reduce your dues by purchasing scrip! Just purchase your scrip and for every dollar you earn Or Chadash, you will receive 25% as a reduction of your dues, a "scrip credit." So, that's 25 cents of every dollar your scrip purchase earns Or Chadash that goes back to you, back in your pocket as a scrip credit. Come give it a try. Click here for the scrip FAQs sheet, and you'll be on your way to making a great contribution to your temple!
Thanks so much!
I hope to see you at these and other programs of Or Chadash.
