Shabbat Service, Saturday, December 13

Avodah is very pleased to have Jennifer Mortimer, coordinator of the Out of the Rain Youth Night Shelter Program, give the drash at our upcoming Dec. 13 Shabbat service.  

Congregation Emanu-El participates in this program, providing shelter and hot meals at our synagogue one night each week to homeless youth during the cold winter months. 
Also joining us from Beacon Community Services will be Elaine Venables, Director of Children’s Programs and Counselling Services. We are grateful to Jenn and Elaine for their outstanding leadership and partnership with Avodah and Congregation Emanu-El in carrying out this important program.
