Torah Reading Coordinator News
We want to welcome Stan Goldstein as our new Torah Reading Coordinator. Stan is adding this new job to his current duties of coordinating special readings. We want to thank Paul Miller for his years of coordinating Torah readers and everything he has done for the Library Minyan.
Greeters Needed
Welcome back to shul!  Last week was a near "sell-out" on the roof of the Rena E. Ganzberg building at TBA, and we expect that as the weather gets better and community immunity gets stronger, so will attendance at the Minyan. With that being said, we want to see some smiling faces (or twinkling eyes if your mask is covering your mouth) greeting our members and guests on Shabbat morning.  Please sign up for one of the upcoming Shabbatot at this link.
Haftarah Plethora
In the Haftarah Plethora for Parshat Bamidbar, the boys discuss the various metaphors for God and His (yes, masculine) relationship to the people, including Hosea’s allegory of the angry husband and unfaithful wife. Rick takes a pre-positive view of the trope while Larry delights in Millie and Billie.
TBA Short Vort
Bamidbar: Naming Names with Zwi Reznik. 
The Mishnah Study Group will be gathering to learn on May 15th with Kathy Rosenblatt..
