  • Rabbi Kosovske is currently at Temple until Sunday, March 1.  Remember that Rabbi is always reachable via telephone and/or email should you need him.  Feel free to call Susie in the Temple Office and she will give you his contact information.

  • Recently, the Temple received a very nice letter from the Alabama Baptist Children’s Homes and Family Ministries thanking us for the contribution made by our Level 2 Religious School class (6-8 yr. olds).  With the assistance of their teacher, Aleta Greenspan, they bought and donated much needed pantry items to benefit Grace’s House of Hope.  Grace’s House of Hope teaches single mothers how to live responsible financial lives and how to restructure their lifestyles to live, work, and properly take care of their dependent children.  You can click on this link to view their letter.

  • On Thursday, February 27 at 6:30 p.m., the Trialogue: Muslims, Jews, and Christians Together will present “Three Rabbis: Similarities and Contrasts”.  The three Rabbis are:  Rabbi Howard Kosovske (Reform), Rabbi Steve Silberman (Conservative), and Rabbi Yosef Goldwasser (Chasidic).  The venue is at Spring Hill College, LeBlanc Conference Room, 2nd Floor Barter Student Center.

  • Springhill Avenue Temple invites you to a production of “An Alphabet of Soldiers” on Sunday, March 1, 4:00 pm.  These works were originally commissioned by Music of Remembrance (MOR), an organization that fills a unique role throughout the world by remembering the Holocaust through music.  With concert performances, educational programs, recordings, and commissions of new works by some of today’s leading composers, MOR honors those of all backgrounds who found the strength to create even in the face of suffering, and those who had the courage to speak out against cruelty.  This event is free and open to the public and is sponsored by Springhill Avenue Temple and Gulf Coast Center for Holocaust and Human Rights Education in conjunction with “BESA – A Code of Honor: Albanian Muslims Who Saved Jews During World War II” at Mobile Museum of Art January 16-May 31, 2020.  Please use this link for a more complete and detailed description of this event – the history, the production, and the performers.

  • Historical Walking Tour – Richard Rose has once again graciously volunteered to lead a historical walking tour of Mobile, which will include the history of the early Mobile Jews.  The walk (approximately 2-3 miles) will begin at 12:30 p.m. on Sunday, March 15, at Fort Conde and should be finished no later than 3:30 p.m.  Please wear walking shoes and you may want to bring a bottle of water.  The tour is limited to 20 people.  So please RSVP to Susie at the Temple – 478-0415.

 


  • The next Religious School session is Sunday, March 8 at 10:00 a.m.

  • Rabbi Kosovske’s next Torah Study is scheduled for Wednesday, February 26 at 5:30 p.m.
