Help the Needy in Daugavpils. We are organizing the collection and sending of winter clothing for Daugavpils. We need the following items, in good condition and any sizes: winter coats, sweaters (wool preferred), boots, gloves, hats, scarves, snowsuits. Also needed are Judaica (not books), medicines and vitamins. See ad in the bulletin or call the temple office for info on drop off places and for further details.
Attend our Weekly Minyan. Since the Middle Ages, Jews have honored those who have died, and tenderly honored those in grief, through the recitation of the Mourner’s Kaddish. A minyan is required. It meets Sundays at 9:45 a.m. in the Perlman Chapel. No commitment to come regularly, or to come again at all, is necessary. But please do come from time to time, or as often as you’d like. It takes 15 or 20 minutes, and means a tremendous amount to the people who cherish and need the mitzvah to console the bereaved.

The Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (RAC) has been the hub of Jewish social justice and legislative activity in the nation's capital for over 40 years. It has educated and mobilized the American Jewish community on legislative and social concerns as an advocate in the Congress of the United States on issues ranging from Israel and Soviet Jewry to economic justice and civil rights, to international peace and religious liberty.
