EAST BAY TIKKUN OLAM CHESSED DAY(S) 2017
ACTS OF CHESSED IN HONOR OF YOM YERUSHALAYIM
BJC is joining Jews around the world in performing acts of chessed as part of the Afikim Foundation's dedication of a Sefer Torah in honor of Yom Yerushalayim, with each letter attached to an act of chessed.
As a congregation we have chosen to dedicate Bereishit 24:18-19, (73 letters). This selection describes Rebecca's bringing water to Eliezer and the camels. We invite and encourage you to participate in an act of kindness. While any act of kindness will "count," we encourage bringing this lesson and trait of generosity into our community, by offering hospitality, meals and food. Each act will be recorded on the website https://jerusalem50.org/ and associated with a letter.
Some suggestions are to offer food to those in need, offer meals to out of towners, extend an invite to people in our community, volunteer time and/or money to a food bank, or sign up for one of the chessed opportunities for EBTOCD at http://ebtocd.weebly.com/. We have a date secured for volunteering at a food bank on Sunday 6/25/17 and you can sign up on the EBTOCD website to secure a spot.
