The Finding Home opening will coincide with the final drawing for our Refugee Support Committee’s raffle, featuring the top prize of an 82″ inch square hand made quilt made by our own Sara Cohen. Other prizes include tickets to a Hawks & Reed show, 2 Josh Simpson mini-planets, and a Breakfast and Birding adventure with a Greenfield family. Proceeds will benefit Team Brownsville, an on-site 501-c-3 providing humanitarian assistance for asylum seekers in Texas.
Tickets for the raffle are $5 each, 5 for $20 and available during Temple Israel office hours. The drawing will take place at the event. You do not need to be present to win. Tickets will be available at the event as well.
Center for Jewish Life in Franklin County
We are a pluralistic Jewish community who gather for services and events in our synagogue and at our members’ homes throughout the county. Our members are farmers, activists, business people, politicians, teachers, and artists. We strive to support each other in our human and community development with on-going classes, ritual practices and justice work.
