Hot Topics Shabbat

27 Oct @ 7:30 pm - 9:00 pm

Please join us for Hot Topics Shabbat on Friday, October 27 at 7:30 p.m., beginning with our Shabbat service and followed by a program with Juliette Smith, founder and director of Fostering Hope for Children. Rabbi Meir Bargeron will lead the service. Join us in person or via livestream on Zoom or YouTube.

As part of the Temple’s longstanding commitment to social action and in honor of our 175th Anniversary, please join us in supporting a mitzvah project to assist 175 foster children in Northeast Indiana through a collaboration with Fostering Hope for Children. 

Our goal is to give each child a tote filled with hygiene items, a blanket, and stuffed animal – something of their very own — that can travel with them wherever they go.

Here’s how you can help: We ask you to shop at your favorite store for age-appropriate hygiene items from our list (about $25 per child, depending where you shop) for one or more children. Label each bag with the age and gender of the child. Then deliver the items at the Temple. If you prefer not to shop, please consider making a donation online to our 175th Anniversary Mitzvah Project.  

During congregational Mitzvah Days on Sunday mornings, December 3 and January 14, we’ll assemble the totes with the toiletries and the additional items.
