Coming into the New Year, we extend our reach nationally with an online fundraiser for the Innocence Project through October 22, the International Day Against Police Brutality.

Our collective goal of $1,800 is not limited to our congregation: please share the link with friends and family. Every donation signifies another person educated on wrongful imprisonment. 

Innocence Project  Fundraise to Help Free the Innocent (

In addition, during High Holiday services we are collecting non-perishable foods for the Interfaith Food Ministry. Kindly bring a grocery bag or two brimming with pantry staples because hunger lives next door. 

And finally, keep an eye out for our upcoming mitzvah: Operation Warmth!

Have a great idea or know of a wonderful organization to support???
