Hillside Pizza fundraiser for our Hebrew School is coming! Please support us by ordering pizzas or gift certificates. Forms for ordering will be available from Fran in the office (beginning Thursday, March 27), Hebrew School parents, and several board members. You will need to pay upfront. Order forms will be due no later than April 28 for pickup on Sunday, May 4. If you can’t pick up that day, we can store pizzas in the frig. Gift certificates are the easiest and you can order what you’d like at anytime! Note that there is school March 25, 30 and April 1.




It’s our annual easy Hillside Pizza Fundraiser!  All funds will help support the school (for scholarships and school expenses).  You can buy all kinds of pizzas (including gluten free), cookies, and $20 gift certificates.  You can order from Fran during office hours or Rhonda, Janice, or parents.  I encourage you to buy as many gift certificates as you can as they can be used to purchase whatever people want at any time.  Pizzas come in oven safe paperboard trays in freezer-friendly bags ready to bake or freeze.



Checks should be made out to Temple Israel since we will issue one check to Hillside Pizza.  Forms and payment need to be returned by APRIL 25.  You can leave forms with either Janice or Fran (during office or school hours) in their boxes on their doors if they are not in. 



Pizzas and gift certificates will be delivered on Sunday morning May 4 at 11am and can be picked up between 11am and 12:30pm, or Tuesday May 6 during office hours between 10:30am and 2pm or school hours between 4:30 and 5:30pm.  Sellers are responsible for getting pizzas and gift certificates to their custormers (or for having them pick them up when the temple is open).  Pizzas will be stored in the refrigerator. 



Please call Janice 774-2178 if you have questions.  Thanks.

In the ready to eat cooler at BJs Hungarian style stuffed cabbage with beef glatt kosher orthodox union, I believe this is the only Kosher meat item in Greenfield at the moment.
