at the YWCA Family Shelter
Our Reform Jewish tradition encourages the work of tikkun olam (social action/repairing the world). In response, we want to organize more opportunities, and do them “Jewishly,” using Shabbat and Jewish learning as a cornerstone. We are partnering with the YWCA Family Shelter. We would like 15-20 volunteers (all ages welcome!) to come and participate in some pre-Thanksgiving games and activities with the families and children. If you are interested in volunteering, sign up here. Contact Heather Stone, firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
13th Annual Chanukiot Making Challenge
One of Rabbi Zinkow’s favorite Chanukah traditions! School age children are encouraged to come up with a crazy chanukiah design and then make it out of “raw” materials (no Legos, Tinker Toys, Kinnex, etc.) The chanukiah should be mostly functional. Entries should have the student’s name on it, and it must be submitted to Rabbi Zinkow’s office no later than Wednesday, December 14. The chanukiot will then be cleverly named and displayed by Rabbi Zinkow during services on Friday, December 16. All entries will receive an award and a small gift! So put your creative thinking cap on and start building! We can’t wait to see all of the wonderful creations you come up with.
