Spread the Light

Many of our community members are engaged in acts of Tzedakah and Tikkun Olam, but so often we don’t know about the good work our chevra are doing. So, this summer, we want to spread the light by creating an opportunity for people to share their stories with the rest of us. Each Shabbat until Rosh Hashanah, we will set aside a few minutes (5 minute max) for someone to talk about a project they’re involved with or a cause they’re giving to – and if they wish, to let us know how others who wish to help can support their cause!
