Do Something Jewish for Christmas!

The Shir Tikvah holiday season ‘Do Something Jewish for Christmas’ tzedekah project will again be to provide Christmas dinner for youth at New Avenues for Youth, a non-profit organization helping homeless youth from Oregon and Southwest Washington. This is the sixth year that Shir TIkvah has helped out this wonderful organization. To learn more about them, click here. NAFY will be serving dinner for 150 kids. Our congregation is committed to providing food for 20 for the dinner on December 24th, Christmas Eve.

The following is a list of needed foods for a holiday meal:
turkey (cooked)
stuffing – regular and vegan
mashed and sweet potatoes
vegetable dishes

We will not be serving the dinner (confidentiality/ insurance issues prevent this) but we are committed to providing the food!! Contact Dale Schwartz for more information or to sign up to help!
Jessica Elkan, with NAFY, will be on hand at services on Dec. 14. She will talk briefly about the organization’s goals and volunteer opportunities.
