The usual evening format:http://www.mormonsandjews.org/events/. The talk will be in the cultural hall where we will again record main parts of the program on Youtube for our members through the US and world who cannot attend. (We have over 1000 members world-wide.)
We are sharing the
building with the Utah Special Needs Program (SNAP).
They must use the parking area and entrance area on the east side of
the building. There will be cones marking off their parking area and
signs pointing toward the north end of the lot. (Please see local map
at link below.) We ask that all B'nai members and guests park only on
the North side of the cultural hall and enter through that north door.
It is a straight walk to the kitchen.Our membership table will be at that door only. SNAP members will not use the kitchen, cultural hall or chapel.
