Wondering about what this photo represents? This is the 5779 Torah Fund pin, which envelopes the Hebrew word for “future” (atid) with a stylized Magen David. It represents our wish for a distinctly Jewish future, for ourselves as individuals, for our families, and our communities.

Yesterday, our Social Action Committee, MakeSpace, and St. Mark's Catholic Church held an interfaith Power Pack Program (P3) here at Olam Tikvah. P3, spearheaded by Food for Others, provides children in need with food to take home and eat over the weekend. Volunteers put together over 400 packs for children in need at Annandale Terrace Elementary School. We are so grateful for the outpouring of support from and for our community.

Due to a continued lack of full power at OT, the JCADA workshop for tomorrow has been cancelled.

Shavuah Tov! OT still has only partial power. For tomorrow, Sunday 3/4, we‘ll have morning minyan @9am as there will be enough light in the sanctuary (dress warmly...if you were at Shabbat services this AM you know why!).

***However, because light and heat are an issue in the rest of the building, the building will be CLOSED after minyan and all Sunday events are cancelled. This includes OTRS & the JCADA workshop!***

Update for evening minyan will come later on Sunday.

Feel free to share this post to spread the word, and stay safe and warm!

The JCADA Workshop on Domestic Abuse Awareness is this Sunday, March 4. Please join us from 10-11:30 a.m. at OT.

Moving from Strength to Strength: Expanding Domestic Abuse Awareness from Reading the Bathroom Sign to Being Able to Support a Friend.

https://jcada.org

Most people recognize the Jewish Coalition Against Domestic Abuse (JCADA) as the organization whose signs you see in the bathroom. However, the bathroom signs are just one part of creating a safe community for people experiencing domestic or dating abuse. Another part is ensuring we all can act as part of the safety net. Join JCADA staff for an interactive workshop focused on learning to recognize red flags of an unhealthy relationship and tools to help a friend or a teen in one.

02/22/2018

There are THREE important events coming up in March - all at OT (see descriptions below):

Sun., 3/4, 10-11:30 a.m. - JCADA Workshop on Domestic Abuse Awareness
Sun., 3/11, 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. - Spring Clothing Swap
Sat., 3/17 - Pink Shabbat - Breast & Ovarian Cancer in the Jewish Community

Here are the descriptions -

Spring Clothing Swap in the lobby outside of the gift shop:
This is an awesome OT community event where you can bring your gently loved clothes, drop them off, and then shop for the next size you need. Members don't need to drop off in order to shop. Start your spring cleaning and start saving your gently used clothes now.

Pink Shabbat:
Join Sisterhood for a very special Shabbat service on March 17. Pink Shabbat is designed to educate women and men about the increased risk of hereditary breast and ovarian cancer among Jewish families, the measures they can take to protect their health, the impact of breast and ovarian cancer on the Jewish community and the resources available through support organizations, such as Sharsheret. Special learning and prayer moments are planned and Dr. Elizabeth Feldman, a local breast surgeon, will be our guest speaker. Don't forget to wear something pink!
