Save the Date for Mitzvah Day: Sunday, May 15!
Kol Rinah’s Tzedek Team is thrilled to announce that Kol Rinah is holding Mitzvah Day! Save the date of Sunday, May 15! We need members of all ages to have fun, build relationships, and do some good deeds for worthy causes! Mitzvah projects will start at the synagogue and might even make it to various sites around St. Louis!
How you can help: If you have an idea for a project, know an organization that could use helping hands on a Sunday, or would like to participate in Mitzvah Day as a group (such as a shul auxiliary, club, or department), please reach out to Co-Chair Denise Field at Thank you to our other Mitzvah Day Co-Chairs Penny Alper and Sherri Besmer for helping us build an event that will bring the whole shul together.
In other news: our first blood drive was a success! We had 21 donors, and ImpactLife collected 16 units of blood, which could save up to 48 lives. Thank you to those that donated and especially to Katherine Tynan, who organized the event. Come donate again on Sunday, June 12. Our nation still has a major blood shortage, so your participation really saves lives.
Finally, congratulations to everyone who was elected to or is serving in an officer capacity with the Tzedek Team: Advocacy Co-Chairs Dr. Scott Kaar and Lauren Brenner, Interim Direct Service Chair Rhonda Bilger, Organizing Co-Chair Richard Gavatin (who needs a co-chair to serve with him!), Communications Co-Chairs Cindy Kalachek and Jaron Asher, and Chair Benjamin Singer. We also welcome new participants Becky Mollett, Dan Buchalter, and Alan Garelick who attended their first meeting.
