January at reStart

It’s time to start thinking about ReStart! Congregation Beth Torah will serve weekend lunches and dinners during the month of January. While sign-ups begin in December, now is the time to decide if you’d like to do a little extra baking to send desserts or other treats with our volunteers.  This is a great project for a chavurah or circle of friends! If you are interested, contact our reStart chair, Scott Franklin at (913) 327-1488 or by e-mail at: sfranklin8@att.net.
