Were you one of the 89 families who came to the Bonfire! on Sunday, May 2nd? Tasted the s'mores? Took Mark Zitter's quizzes? Visited with the Rabbis' families? Met some veteran and some new shul members--'Up Close and Personal'? We don't even want to know what was in your mug!

Even if you didn't make it to the Opening event, we don't want you to miss out on the fun, so here is a link to the recording--enjoy! 
Helpful hint: when playing Rabbi Dardik's tour, you might want to lower the volume, and read the subtitles. Unfortunately, the sound of the wind in the background interferes with the voice.
