SOMA Resettlement – A New Chance to Add Light to the World
From the chairs of the Deuteronomy 10:19 Resettlement Project:
Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel, Congregation Beth El, and Oheb Shalom Congregation are joining together to resettle a refugee family in our community. We are excited to announce that Church World Services has identified a Syrian family in need of our support and we are expecting a mid-January arrival. We need to quickly arrange housing and so much more before we can make this happen!
Thank you so much to all who have contributed so far! We have already raised an impressive $16K towards our goal. Please consider donating before the end of the year and sharing our fundraising page with your friends on social media. As an added incentive, we have a donor willing to match the next $1,500 raised to help us meet our end of year fundraising goals. Click here to donate on our gofundme page.
We are in immediate need of volunteers for this effort, especially to identify affordable housing, provide Arabic language support, and advocate with schools and social services. Click here to volunteer your energies.
Thanks so much for your support!!!
