October 2018 Message from President Howie Hirsch

Shalom Temple Members,

The board voted last night to be part of the Daffodil Project. You can get more information at their website.

The idea behind the project is to create a garden around the world of 1.5 million daffodils to honor the memory of the 1.5 million children who were murdered during the Holocaust. We will have a ceremony and plant 500 daffodils at the temple on October 28th, probably around 11 AM.

I ask for all of you to help by:

(1) coming to the temple to plant some daffodil bulbs and spreading some soil and mulch over the daffodils.
(2) Supporting this project financially with a donation to help defray the cost of the daffodils, plaque stand, soil and mulch.

As of last count, over 470,000 daffodils have been planted.

I am so excited about this event.

Love, Howie
