May 2023 Tzedek Team News

Calling all gardeners, crafters and doers! Join the Kol Rinah community for Mitzvah Day 2023 on Sunday, May 7, from 11:30 am to 1:30 pm, with lunch provided at no charge by the Brotherhood. Sisterhood will again provide snacks.
 
This year, we have offered our communal efforts to even more non-profit organizations. We have organized a blood drive with ImpactLife. We will be making stress balls to aid in the rehabilitation of veterans at the VA, crafting blankets for the patients at BJC Hospice, assembling soup mixes for the Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry, packing dinners for Operation Food Search, and writing letters to thank Israeli Soldiers for their efforts through ThankIsraeliSoldiers.org, among other activities. And “good conduct dog” Lola will again join us as we make pet toys for the Humane Society of Missouri.
 
We also hope to enrich the natural environment of Kol Rinah by installing plantings to prevent erosion on our grounds. We need everyone, from expert gardeners to those willing to dig the holes, to volunteer their time and expertise to make this happen.
 
While young families will find activities (and hot dogs) that they will enjoy, Mitzvah Day needs the efforts of congregants of all ages to complete the projects organized for the day.
 
If you have not yet signed up, please do so now! Sign up here to attend and here to reserve a time to donate blood. Everyone, from ages 2 to 102, can help us make a difference in our community!
