Hospital Volunteers Needed

December 24 and 25, 2017

Temple membership is once again being asked to volunteer at Clara Maass Hospital in Belleville. As in previous years, help is needed for about two hours to allow hospital staff and other year-round volunteers some time off to enjoy their Christmas holiday. Tasks include greeting visitors, issuing visitor passes at the front desk, answering the telephone, and other requests such as running errands for staff and delivering newspapers.

This is a wonderful opportunity to spend some time with other members of our Temple family and is time well spent. If you would like to volunteer please email Harvey Morginstin at hayimm@gmail.com.

The Big Idea

As we enter a period of transition at TNT, preparing to say goodbye to Rabbi Kushner, we are excited to embark on an exciting journey that will pave the way for a new beginning. In the spirit of this moment, we are excited to announce our search for a Temple Ner Tamid “Big Idea”.


Think Uber, Waze, Airbnb, the TNT Purim Shpiel! Once upon a time each of these ideas sprouted as a new idea from someone’s mind. Every member of the TNT community is invited to think outside the box and dream up a new, innovative idea for our community. The idea can be a project. It can be a program. It can be an event. It can even be a new approach to something we’ve always done – only better, broader and with wider involvement and greater impact.

Your Big Idea will deepen the cultural, spiritual, social or educational life of our community. It will engage lots of people, maybe even those who are not usually engaged – and it will be created, executed and evaluated by community members (rather than by clergy, staff or synagogue “leaders”).

Thanks to an anonymous member of our TNT community and the combined efforts of our Board, a Big Idea Fund (BIF) has been created to underwrite the costs associated with making one or more Big Idea(s) a reality!

HAVE AN IDEA? Pick up a BIG IDEA SHARING FORM in the front lobby of the synagogue. The deadline for submission is Friday, October 13. Questions? Contact Peri Smilow
