The Front Steps Project (Update)

As we have previously announced, WJC is participating in our own version of the Front Steps Project. The Front Steps Project was started this past March by a Boston-area photographer with a goal to highlight the faces of a community during a time when we might not see each other in our normal places.

Harold Treiber will continue to take photos of families in front of their homes from an appropriate distance—we would love as many families as possible to participate!

For those families who did not participate in the first round of photos, Harold will be taking another round of photos on the following dates: Thursday, July 9 from 3:00-7:30pm and Sunday, July 12 from 5:00-8:00pm. Please let us know your availability during all or part of those windows, it is hard to meet an exact time request but feel free to list any times you are not available. Harold will then confirm an exact date and time with you before the day of the photo. We are blessed to have congregants throughout Westchester, so he considers geography and traffic in setting his schedule.

Please click on the link below to email Harold as to your availability. If you want to participate, but these time slots doesn’t work, let Harold know as well and he will see if there are any other options. The entire process should take no more than 15 minutes per family and we will share the images on the synagogue website and social media pages, as well as share the jpeg file with the family.

Please email Harold at harold.treiber@gmail.com using the subject “Front Steps Project” with the following information:
Family Name:
Number of People in the Photo:
Date and all Times You Are Available:

Phone Number to Reach:

Participants in The Front Steps Projects sometimes choose to make a donation in honor of the project. You can ABSOLUTELY participate in our WJC Front Steps Project without doing a donation, but if you choose to do so, we’d like to suggest three organizations for you to consider:

  1. We Will Provide is sending meals to hospital staff from local restaurants supporting the restaurants and the heroic hospital staff. This supports our local business and medical professionals
  2. Community Resource Center is providing critical services to support the most vulnerable individuals and families in our local area
  3. WJC is supporting a variety of needs that arise during this difficult time through our Rabbi and Cantor Discretionary Funds and Social Action Fund
  4. Voluntary donations can be made directly to these organizations or any other organization of your choosing.

We look forward to seeing your smiling faces!

B’Shalom,
Harold (for himself and Tami Arnowitz)
