Temple Israel’s Refugee Support Project is preparing to be the support team for an Afghan family which will be settling in Turners Falls sometime in late December.
We expect that 2 families will be placed in Turners and we will have charge of one of them. We were told we would have short warning and can expect to activate in late December. No more details yet, as to number, gender et al.
Prospective donors are welcome to register their offerings with Rabbi Andrea or the office, we are keeping a list of donors and using Moishe’s List to request donations as well.
Volunteers will be wanted:
- Shopping for or with people

Please contact us if you have any special skills or interest areas that you would like to help with, as a volunteer.
