SOJAC Donations by the Numbers!

By Sharon Silver, Chair

In November, we welcomed 50 attendees with a SOJAC Shabbat with dinner, a special Rhythm & Ruach, and an outstanding speaker, Joan Grangenois-Thomas. Nearly 100 SOJAC Booklets were distributed, as we worshipped together and focused our learning on the connections between Jewish teachings and the work of SOJAC. Here’s a quick view of what we, as a community, accomplished:

CRC Holiday Gift Drive- December 9th and 16th

  • 120+ Fleece blankets for adults
  • 120+ Activity Books for children ages 4-12
  • Plus hats and gloves for children ages 3 months -4 and $25 gift cards for teens

SOJAC Shabbat Weekend- November 16,17 and 18Th (Mitzvah Day)

  • 72 cans of vegetables
