How Will I Change the World This Year?
Isaiah 58:5 reads: “Is this the kind of fast I desire, a day of merely depriving one’s body? Is it not the sharing of your bread with the hungry, the bringing of the wretched poor into your home, or clothing someone you see who is naked, and not hiding from your kin in their need?”
The [T]Be Involved Social Action Committee encourages you to participate in our social action programs. Events are subsidized by the Chico Bomchel Memorial Social Action Fund at Temple Beth-El. Thank you for your support. View the 5780 Social Action brochure.
Women’s Business Clothing and Shoes Needed
The Social Action Committee is collecting new or gently used women’s clothing and shoes suitable for business-wear until Purim. The clothing will go to My Sister’s Closet, a low cost women’s boutique that has everything that a woman might need but might not be able to afford. Most of the customers are referred by various agencies, and many are getting their lives back on track and entering the workforce or interviewing for a job. Search your closets and bring your donations to the Arlene & Marvin Shelsky and Family Collection Closet located in the Reading & Resource Room. They will be transferred to My Sister’s Closet. For more information contact Judy Olitsky.
