Congregation Etz Chaim’s

Movie Night!

Saturday, December 26 at 6:30pm


Frederick Bronski (Mel Brooks) and his adulterous wife, Anna (Anne Bancroft), are a pair of hammy actors running a low-rent theater in Warsaw, Poland. When the Nazis invade, the Bronskis find their theater becoming a makeshift refuge for local Jews and a gateway to the Polish underground. Using their limited acting skills, the members of the theater troupe attempt to deceive the Nazis and lead an escape. Meanwhile, a Polish pilot (Tim Matheson) thinks he has found a spy in England. 

Rated PG, may not be suitable for children under 12 (use your best judgement).

Please RSVP to Robin if you would like to attend.  Call 223-5344 or email

The Perinton Food Shelf

The food shelf has been blessed with many generous donations from churches, businesses and community groups.  But, inevitably, as food items come in, they also go out as they are delivered to the needy in the community.

At the present time, the Perinton Food Cupboard needs:
Canned beef stew, Canned corned beef hash, Coffee (regular, small cans preferred), Flour,Kids' juice boxes or packets, Paper towels, Pudding mix, Salad dressing, Sugar (1 lb.) and Toilet paper.

No glass containers, please !

IMPORTANT:   The Perinton Food Shelf is also looking for volunteers.

The group also needs more volunteers to pack and deliver food -  Very part-time but certainly needed !!!!  If you could help with any of these tasks and/or for further information, please phone 425-7410 and leave a message.

Thank you for your generous contributions !
