Social Action Committee Newsletter (October 2015)

Whatever you find within your power to do, do it.

Hope everyone’s new year has been treating them well. Thank you all for your generous donations throughout the high holidays. With your help we were able to contribute to Foodshare’s efforts to feed thousands of hungry families in the Greater Hartford area

We wish to tell you about our upcoming social action events. October’s Mitzvah of the Month is a book drive. Please bring new and lightly used books to the Temple throughout the month of October. All donations are much appreciated.

November’s Mitzvah of the Month is our annual Turkey and a $30 drive. On November 22, from 9-12, we will be collecting turkeys and monetary donations for Foodshare. In past years we have raised thousands of dollars and have donated hundreds of turkeys for this cause.

If you are interested in joining Knitzvah or helping to serve food at the Mercy Shelter, please contact us for more information.

We truly appreciate the contributions of all members of our congregation to social action efforts. Regardless of whether you are donating time, money, or skills it is important that we give back to our community as best we can!

Our meetings are the third Wednesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. Our next meeting is Wednesday, October 21. Hope to see you there!

Please contact Sarah Maltese by email new message24 or by calling the Temple office at 860 / 561-1055 with any questions. We look forward to seeing you!
