Blanket Drive

This month, we will continue collecting items for cold and wet weather to assist those who are facing winter without basic necessities. In addition to blankets, we welcome rain ponchos, umbrellas, gloves, hats and other items to help those in our San Diego community stay warm and dry.

Blankets and other items may be used, but clean and in good condition. They will be given to the Alpha Project, the Veterans’ Winter Shelter, and others in need in the San Diego area. For more information, please contact Larry Ponseggi at (619) 444-9163 or lponseggi@gmail.com

Please bring all donations to the Social Action barrel in the front office lobby of the Temple, and members of the committee will deliver them.

Temple Emanu-El was a sponsoring  congregation for the 10th year running.  The event drew almost 600 volunteers from Churches, Synagogues, and the Islamic Center.  This year in addition to individual and family volunteers our SanETY youth  group participated along with Rabbi Benj.

This  was a robust park beautification project during which a dozen large trees were planted, a lot of mulch was spread, and unwanted brush and trash was removed.  After the clean-up every one was treated to a free hot dog lunch and live music from the Bayou Brothers Cajun music band.
