Soviet Jews denied exit visas in 1970 hatch a plan to hijack an empty plane and escape under the guise of attending a family wedding, View the harrowing tale before it opens wide in theaters.
Each spring, over 150 congregants and friends of all ages gather to participate in a variety of Mitzvah (good deed) projects at Congregation Shir Shalom and off-site area agencies. On this single day, we stock local food pantries, collect children’s books, knit hats for newborns and preemies, wash windows at senior residences, prepare meals for the homeless, and more. We conclude this amazing day of community spirit with a party for our volunteers, including a slideshow celebrating their accomplishments.
The Mitzvah Day Committee is hard at work planning an amazing day of service. We are currently seeking volunteers to help with set-up and take-down. If you’d like to help, email Debbie Lavin. Click here to email Debbie.
So, put Sunday, May 7th on your calendar and keep an eye out for more information!
