This is the time of year that school starts, and there are some children that are unable to obtain the school supplies they need to excel isnschool. WE CAN HELP! Social Action is having its annual school supply drive to help our local community children so they can get a great start for the 2014-2015 school year. We need school supplies (all supplies help!) or a monetary donation so we can buy supplies for you... it is EASY, you can just bring them with you to the first day of Hebrew School on August 24th or you can bring them at any time through September 21 and drop them off at the temple. This is NOT only for parents of school age children, you can bring your donations whenever you come to the temple... the children of our community need your help... please donate to this amazing cause. We have a contest for the religious school classes (rules and details to come). We have a lot of exciting projects coming up this year, both social and project driven, so if you want to join the Social Action committee please e-mail Camy Schwam- Wilcox at camy@cbswlaw.com.

We are still collecting food for Jewish Family Services! There is a box at the temple to drop off non-perishable donations.
