Sisterhood & CAPSSunday, April 20 @ 10:30 amIf you Love Animals, Come to Temple on April 20 at 10:30 am. We’ll be offering six, adorable arts & crafts projects (doggie & cat toys) that we’ll help your children (all ages) make and decorate for their animals. CAPS volunteers also will tell you and your children all about their animal facility and program for rescuing unwanted animals and having them adopted by the public. So, if you’re interested in a new pet, today or sometime in the future, CAPS is an excellent place to find a healthy animal. The volunteers will tell you all about how to adopt a pet from CAPS. DONATE. This party is being made available to you and your children at no cost. However, in return, we ask that your child donate something to CAPS. A can or bag of dog food or cat food, or old newspapers, or rolls of paper towels would make a perfect donation. Get Licked & Kissed Two special, tiny dogs, dressed in clothing to honor the day, will be waiting for your and your children in a kissing booth in the Temple’s atrium. Those of you who are not allergic to animals can come and get licked and kissed.

Meet the Rabbi
Shalom! My name is Annie Belford, and I am filled with joy and a sense of deep honor to be a part of the only Reform Synagogue in West Houston. My rabbinate has been defined by bringing Jewish learning to life, allowing tradition to speak to us as modern, liberal Jews, and being fully present to members of my community in times of struggle as well as times of joy. The personal connections I form with people are the heart and soul of why I am a rabbi, for I believe that in these very human connections, we find connection with God. One of Judaism’s fundamental beliefs – the one that I believe most strongly – is that all people are made b’tzelem Elohim, in the image of God. Because of this fundamental belief, I recognize the image of God in everyone—regardless of race, sexual orientation, religion, or background. I strive to honor the holiness in each person and greet them with openness and kindness. I am truly in love with Judaism and its teachings; I look forward to the struggles our tradition demands, and I rejoice in the ways it uplifts my life. Judaism has the power to move us, change us, and shape our lives—a power that only comes fully alive in a community such as Temple Sinai.
