Mitzvah of the Month: October
New Children’s Books

During October, we will collect new children’s books for Light One Little Candle.

Light One Little Candle was developed so that cancer patients could strengthen their bond with their children, grandchildren or others in their lives through reading together. Here in San Diego, books will be distributed free of charge through Moores Cancer Center at UCSD Medical Center. This project can only accept donations of brand new books.  Contact Helen Elias at helenelias1@gmail.com or (858) 270-7264 for questions.

We are collecting books appropriate for children from infants through age 15, in either English or Spanish. Please note that books for children ages 10 – 15 are rarely donated.

Bring your book donations to the white barrel in the lobby of the Temple office building, and the Social Action Committee will sort and deliver them.
