Maot Chittim Passover Fund

It is an ancient and sacred custom to make a special solicitation of funds before Passover to be used for those in need. While charity is a mitzvah at all times, it has long been felt that on Passover in particular none should go hungry and everyone should have the wherewithal for proper observance of the festival. Called ‘Maot Chittim,’ this tradition continues in our own day and is used to provide Seder and other Passover needs to fellow Jews around the world. It has always been a hallowed tradition among our people to remember our less fortunate, whoever they may be, even as we prepare to celebrate Pesach together with our own families.

Please attend to this mitzvah now by using this link to make an online donation through Beth El.  (You will have the option to be billed or pay via credit card, to add a note for Donor/Bulletin Listing, and designate the type of donation such as ‘in honor of’, ‘in memory of.’)

A free “treat” from Subaru and Terracycle

My newest opportunity to redefine and reduce waste comes courtesy of Subaru and TerraCycle. Subaru was the first manufacturing facility in the United States (Indiana) to reach zero-landfill status. This occurred in 2004, and ever since Subaru has not sent any waste to landfills. So it was only natural that Subaru and TerraCycle formed a…
