WJC Front Steps Project

Dear WJC Family,

We are excited to announce that WJC will be 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. We see this project as another way to keep our community strong and connected during this time—we have all missed seeing each other in services, in classes, at kiddush, and more!!

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

Harold will be taking the first round of photos on the following dates: Thursday, June 25; Sunday, June 28; or the afternoon of Monday, June 29. Please suggest a time, or let us know what times on the selected date(s) do not work. We are blessed to have congregants throughout Westchester, so geography and traffic may play a role in our ability to match your exact time.

Please click on the link below to email Harold as to your availability on those dates. If you want to participate, but these time slots doesn’t work, let Harold know as well. We plan to do this again. 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:

Participants in The Front Steps Projects sometimes choose to make a donation in honor of the project (over $1,850,000 raised nationwide so far for local organizations and non-profits.) 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.

If you have any questions about the project, please feel free to contact Harold Treiber or Tami Arnowitz (tlarnowitz@gmail.com). We look forward to seeing your smiling faces!

B’Shalom,
Harold & Tami
