Shabbat B'Yachad - October 16

Shabbat B'yachad will be celebrated here at Congregation B'nai Jacob, with members of the Temple, on Friday, October 16 at 7:00pm.  An oneg will follow.  

Getting to and from B'nai Jacob

Effective immediately and until further notice, the Indiana Department of Transportation has closed the entrance to and exit from Bittersweet Moors Drive at U.S. 24 West.  The disruption is due to a box culvert replacement project on U.S. 24 West between Homestead and Amber Roads.  Completion of the project is expected by November 20, 2015. This means all members and visitors to the synagogue must use alternative routes.  Please carefully study the link below for access ways at Dell Loch Way via Homestead Road; and Glen Lake Drive via Amber Road.  If necessary, please call the synagogue office at 672-8459 for further assistance with directions.

Kosher Around Town

Aldi's on Lima Road carries packaged crescent rolls, biscuits and pie crusts that are heckshered (marked Kosher). Very exciting news since no other store has the same items available for the Kosher consumer.

The new Fresh Thyme Farmer's Market on Coldwater at Coliseum has a nice selection of heckshered cakes, prepared foods and cheeses for the Kosher consumer as well.

Earth Fare on Dupont Road has Kosher turkey and meats available.  Call Zach Hull at Earth Fare for more information.  260-416-3550

Also, the Kroger Marketplace at Coventry is still bringing in fresh Kosher meat and deli on a regular basis.  Kroger also carries small containers of Pareve coffee whitener (Rich's) in the frozen food section.

Gordon's Food Service on Washington Center Road carries Pareve whip topping (Rich's) in the frozen food section.  GFS also carries red and green food containers from Cambro with blue available by order.  These containers can be used, according to color, for kosher purposes of separating meat, milk, and Pareve products. 

Please support all of these stores in their efforts to help the Jewish community of Fort Wayne.
