Mitzvah Gram

Hello, I am Natalie Hyman. I am taking over the Mitzvah Grams for Sisterhood. We have a new option available to pay $50.00 for 6 months of Mitzvah Grams from September 2021-February 2022. For those of you who prefer the $.75 option that is still available. Circle the names of birthdays and anniversaries you would like to acknowledge. Once a month all you need to do is mail, (email), the monthly completed sheet of your choice of names to njhyman@aol.com. Please make checks out to Agudath Achim Sisterhood.

Thank you.
Backpack Buddies


Your Backpack Buddies program is providing a fully-cooked, complete Thanksgiving meal to the families of all of the children we serve. We estimate that will be approximately 80 families. The meals, purchased from PUBLIX, costs us $50 each, bringing our total estimated cost to $4,000.

Will you pitch in $50 or more to sponsor a meal for one of our Backpack Buddies families? Your support is extremely meaningful!!

To participate, either (a) send a check for the number of meals you want to sponsor to Congregation Agudath Achim, 9 Lee Boulevard, Savannah, GA 31405 (please note “Turkey Dinners” on your check) or (b) call the synagogue office at 912-352-4737 and tell them to bill your account for the amount you would like to donate for meals.

Thank you for the mitzvah of supporting these young children and their families! Wishing you and yours a Happy and Joyful Thanksgiving Holiday!
