GFIA OCTOBER MEETING

October 2017
Help is Needed to Meet The Needs AT Great Falls Public Schools.

East Middle School’s greatest need is mentorship for students who have either not had a positive adult role model in their lives, or feel abandoned by
all their previous adults. They need adults who can check up on them regularly, and be a positive long-term adult presence in their lives. To volunteer,
contact Brad Barringer at 268-6503.

North Middle School’s greatest needs are Career Pathway interest volunteers and assistance paying for School lunches. The school has clubs every Thursday
such as a Daycare Club, where they become certified for child care, and a Vet Tech Club, where they learn pet care. The School brings in partners from
the community to teach them life and career skills. Skills like how to prepare and conduct themselves for a job interview. They are always looking for
new careers to add. For more info or to volunteer, contact Tara Rosipal at 268-6530.

United Way is sponsoring an effort, “Teaching 8th-graders about the workplace.” Volunteers are needed at North and East Middle Schools from 8 am to 2:45
pm on Thursday, Oct 12. People can volunteer all day or for as little as 90 minutes.

HOLOCAUST POSTERS, FRAMES, AND SHIPPING CRATES ARE STILL IN NEED OF serious REPAIR

With school starting, calls will be coming in to exhibit the Holocaust posters. They cannot go out in the deplorable condition they are currently in. We have several choices.

1. Come together at the Times Square Building and repair them. Those that are good at painting can paint. Those that are carpenters can help to restore the frames and the shipping crates.
2. Pay to have them repaired.
3. Store them somewhere, unrepaired. End of story.
4. Sell them. End of responsibility. End of story.

Maybe this should be on the board meeting agenda.

THE STATE OF ISRAEL

EDITOR’S NOTE: Sorry this is late. I just found it in my other email in box, the one I never check. I thought it was important enough to post here.

September 19, 2017

One hundred years ago, Lord Arthur Balfour stuns the world by issuing the Balfour Declaration stating that the British government supports the establishment of a national home for the Jewish people. This became the legal instrument making possible the State of Israel.

At the same time in 1917, a few hundred miles away, two young men were reacquainted after serving in the same unit in the United States Armed Forces during World War I. When the war ends, they become business partners. Their names are Harry S. Truman and Eddie Jacobson.

On July 20, 1944, Adolf Hitler is almost assassinated. He goes on radio to assure the German people that, “Fate has selected me for my mission.” It was to be the last time that Hitler ever spoke in public.

On that same day, the Democrats gather to nominate Franklin Roosevelt for a fourth term. His cardiologist notifies his senior aids that he will only live for another year.

Harry Truman does not want to be Vice President and, in fact, he is selected to nominate Jimmy Byrnes. But at Roosevelt’s insistence, he allows his name to be entered and, after decisively loosing the first ballot to the sitting VP, Henry Wallace, he miraculously wins the second ballot by a landslide.

Nine months later, Roosevelt dies. Truman has little experience in foreign affairs, and is totally dependent on his Secretary of State, General George Marshall, who vehemently opposes a Jewish State.

At this crucial moment, Truman’s partner, Eddie Jacobson, arrives uninvited in the Oval Office, passionately making the case for a Jewish State. In the end, Truman agrees, and tells Chaim Weitzman that when a State is declared he will recognize it.

On Rosh Hashanah we are reminded that there is a G-d in the world, and though he lives in the heavens, he occasionally sends us emails and tweets, and only asks of us that we be sure to open them!

Wishing you a happy and healthy New Year,

JEWS DON’T SAY HAPPY NEW YEAR

https://www.aish.com/jw/s/Jews-Dont-Say-Happy-New-Year.html

A PRAYER FOR THE NEW YEAR

Dear Lord

May we get a clean bill of health from our dentist, our psychiatrist, our ophthalmologist, our cardiologist, our gastroenterologist, our urologist, our proctologist, our gynaecologist, our podiatrist, our plumber and the IRS.

May our hair, our teeth, our facelift, our abs, our honey cakes, and our stocks not fall, and may our blood pressure, our triglycerides, our cholesterol, our white blood count, our weight, and our mortgage interest rates not rise.

May we find a way to travel from anywhere to anywhere in the rush hour in less than an hour, and when we get there, may we find a parking space.

May God give us the strength to get through this presidential season, and may some of the promises made be kept. May we believe at least half of what the candidates propose, and may those elected fulfil at least half of what they promise, and may the miracle of reducing taxes and balancing budgets actually happen.

May what we see in the mirror delight us, and what others see in us delight them. May someone, as well as God, love us enough to forgive our
faults, be blind to our blemishes, and tell the world about our virtues.

May the telemarketers wait until after we finish dinner to call us. May our cheque books and budgets balance, and may they include generous amounts for charity.

May we remember to say “I love you” at least once a day to our spouse, our child, our parent, all of our significant others, but not our boss, our intern, our nurse, our masseur, our hairdresser or our tennis instructor.

And may the Messiah come this year, and if he does not, may we live as if he has, in a world at peace, with awareness of God’s love in every sunset,
flower, baby’s smile, lover’s kiss, and every wonderful astonishing beat of our heart.
