sponsor a food basket in honor of or in memory of someone.The Women’s Shelter at the YWCA provides
support to women and children who are victims of domestic violence.When sponsoring a food basket, you, yourself
are giving much needed things such as food and personal hygiene items.It lets them know that someone cares about
them.For $25 you can fulfill part of
your Jewish obligation in giving to this charity.Your name, along with your honoree’s name
will be read during the Shabbat services in which you are sponsoring the food
basket.Your name and your honoree’s
name will also be in Rabbi’s weekly e-mail as well as in the Bulletin.With the High Holy Days just around the
corner, there is no better time than now to perform this mitzvah.
any Friday evening, it is always nice to have flowers brighten up the
bima.For $25 you can brighten up the
Shabbat in honor of someone or in memory of someone.
