Temple B’nai Israel and Mayflower Congregational UCC are working with the Planned Parenthood Association of Central Oklahoma to offer its “StraightTalk” program to our 5th and 6th graders. The “Straight Talk” sessions, designed to increase family communication about sexuality, are conducted by trained educators. With new awareness, some of the outdated, erroneous, and irresponsible beliefs may be replaced with new, accurate, and healthier ones. Sessions will be held at Mayflower Congregational UCC from 12:30-2:30 on four Sundays following ICSS. Lunch will be served. Students should attend with at least one guardian, as this program is for students and their guardians. Cost is $10 per person.

Bring a present for a fun gift exchange game, eat Ted’s Mexican food, light menorahs, and do community service all in one place. Teens will have a blast decorating cookies and mingling with old friends and meeting new ones. This event is FREE of charge. Just RSVP so we know how many to buy food for!
Support Group for Caregivers
This seven-week support group will provide camaraderie and guidance for adult caregivers, facilitated by Stephanie Brill, LCSW. This group will help you navigate the difficulties of caring for your loved one while helping you to also care for yourself. There is no charge for Temple members and a nominal $36 fee for non-members (payable to Temple B’nai Israel). The group will meet December 4, 11, 18, and every Tuesday in January.
