Project  Homeless Connect
As the summer solstice comes to us, it's not too early to plan for fall.  Project Homeless Connect Rochester will be coming again to the Blue Cross Arena on September 14.
    If you'd like to volunteer again, please register on the website: http://homelessconnectrochester.org/
    If you'd like to help with a coat drive, please reply and let me know and I'll put you in charge with those managing the coat collection. The coat room is one of the things our guests look forward to and we have to work hard to ensure that there are enough to go around.  We could use your help.

Sign up to learn more about the Reform movement's national and international social justice efforts!

Temple B'rith Kodesh is part of the Union for Reform Judaism, which has many different constituencies. One is the Religious Action Center in Washington, DC, which works on dozens of pressing social action concerns.  Follow this link if you would like to receive regular updates and action alerts from the RAC.

As mentioned in Rabbi Stein's Annual Meeting address, there will be a number of summer conversations and planning sessions to explore our engagement with advocacy and other aspects of social action. Making connections with the RAC is just one part of this effort, for those who are inclined to participate.
