Join us for a wonderful family program for kids of all ages on Saturday, December 5. This tzedakah inspired program will teach our children about giving during the holidays and feature resident song-leader extraordinaire Nick Burka. Event includes a Chanukah inspired dinner.

This Chanukah and Havdalah program will provide toys for the South End Community Health Center families struggling with homelessness. Please bring an unwrapped toy and/or stocking stuffer to this event. Older children will wrap the toys, and children of all ages will create holiday cards and decorate stockings. Suggestions and links to toys can be found here at

Dinner will start promptly at 5:00pm in the Community Room and be followed by songs/tzekdakah activities at 5:30pm upstairs in the Sanctuary.
