WESTFIELD, NJ - The Westfield Area Y is hosting the 12th Annual Golf Classic and Dinner with Live Auction on Monday, May 2nd at Echo Lake Country Club in Westfield. All proceeds benefit the Annual Support Campaign for strong kids, families and seniors, ensuring that no one who lives or works in Westfield, Cranford, Garwood or Mountainside and is suffering a bona fide financial hardship is turned away for the inability to pay. In 2015, the Y provided $418,615 in direct financial assistance to 235 individuals, primarily for child care and summer camp services. 
 
Play golf?  Play format is a shamble. Prizes will be awarded for both team performance and individual games of skill by both men and women.  Lunch begins at 11:00 am, shotgun start is at12:30 pm.
 
Don't play golf?  Come for part two of our day: Enjoy a cocktail hour and hors d’oeuvres beginning at 5:30 pm, followed by a buffet reception and a live auction facilitated by WCBS TV weathercaster John Elliott. If you have seen him in action, you know what a treat the auction is! 
 
 
Great auction items include vacations to the Cayman Islands and Scottsdale, Arizona, a scenic plane ride for two up the Hudson River, Broadway Show tickets, sporting event tickets, foursomes at select golf courses and many more! 
 
If you have a vacation home or time share, access to a fine dining establishment, sporting event, or airline or concert tickets, please consider donating them as an auction item.  You will have the satisfaction of knowing that the proceeds of your gift helped a child in need go to camp this summer, or to child care this fall.

This week's parshah, Shemini, introduces the Torah's dietary laws. Animals must chew their cud and have split hooves to be kosher, fish need fins and scales, and a list of forbidden fowl is enumerated.

To those of us in Jewish education, it is a continuing source of disappointment that so many Jews still believe the kosher laws to be outdated.
