This week is our annual Social Action Shabbat/Human Rights Shabbat, at a special early time. Please join us for that and for many of the other social action and purely social activities going on at TEMV!
Social Action Shabbat Service/Human Rights Shabbat
Friday, December 9, 7pm (Note early start time)
In honor of Human Rights Shabbat, we are pleased to welcome Jayde Campbell, Executive Director of the Lowell Transitional Living Center and an individual with lived experience who will present on the topic of homelessness. They will discuss what life is like as a homeless person, what services are available, and what is missing. They will also give us some ideas about what we as a congregation and as individuals can do to help.
The presentation will follow a brief Kabbalat Shabbat service.
The current toiletries collection will be donated to the Lowell Transitional Living Center.

Rabbi Sparr is available for office hours on Thursday morning and Friday late afternoon, by appointment. Kindly contact her to schedule a time.

Special Family Education
This week’s programming will include some family education components, including adults-only discussion about the convergence of December holidays, some adult and child together programming, and kids-only learning. An adult from each family is strongly encouraged to attend the entire morning. More details in the Hadashot to follow.
Thursday, December 15, 7pm
Board Meetings are open to the entire TEMV membership.
Check out our potential Adult Ed offerings and submit your preferences. Rabbi Sparr will offer classes based on our responses.
Volunteer to Host an Oneg
