Please join our High School students for our annual Amnesty International “Write For Rights” letter-writing campaign on SUNDAY MORNING DECEMBER 9 from 10:00-11:30 am.  We invite ALL CONGREGATION MEMBERS AND THEIR FRIENDS to join us to make real difference in the lives of those in need. 
 
Every year, to mark Human Rights Day on December 10th, hundreds of thousands of people around the world take part in Amnesty International’s campaign, hand-writing letters to help people they’ve never met. Letter writing has always been at the core of Amnesty’s work, and 55 years of human rights activism show that our letters really DO have the power to change lives.  These letters help convince government officials to release people imprisoned for expressing their opinion (called “prisoners of conscience” by Amnesty), support human rights defenders, stop torture, commute death sentences, and end other human rights abuses.  You can view a short video here: [https://youtu.be/0qt3rTVD3O0] and read more about Write For Rights here:  [https://write.amnestyusa.org/what-is-write-for-rights/]

XMAS VOLUNTEERING AT 2100 LAKESIDE SHELTER  
 
 
  Avon Girl Scout's drive helps Cleveland's homeless ...               2100 Lakeside Men's Homeless Shelter - Lutheran ...             December 1 – 2100 Lakeside (Mens Shelter)   
 
 
Hello, everyone.  This year we’re going to take a different approach that should keep things simpler for everyone on Tuesday, December 25th.  No more sign-up sheets.  The team at 2100 is mostly in need of our help in two different time-periods:
 
·    From 10:00 am until Noon for set-up
 
·    From 2:00 pm until 5:00 pm when many volunteers have left
 
So feel free to just show up for any of those times and stay for as long as you would like. 
 
They also are in need of more side dishes—and they ask that each of us bring as many side dishes of any kind as we can.  THANK YOU!

Food for the needyIn the realm of tikkun olam, two commandments in Leviticus, which mandate that we leave crops at the corners of the fields (pei’ah) and fallen grain (sh’chicah) for the poor, are associated with Shavuot and our responsibility to feed the hungry. As you come to temple, please remember those in need and bring in non-perishable foods to support Project SCAN.

And… Rose Centers for Aging Well (formerly Golden Age Centers) continue to collect personal toiletries for seniors.
