National Diaper Need Awareness Week
September 25 - October 1
Diaper Need Awareness Week is an initiative of the National Diaper Bank Network (NDBN) created to mobilize efforts to help make a difference in the lives of the nearly 5.2 million babies in the U.S. aged three or younger who live in poor or low-income families. Together, we will wipe out diaper need.
Michael Klahr Jewish Family Services will open this program for sponsorship and support in November.
Gather your friends, family, coworkers, or Havurah group! Help Michael Klahr Jewish Family Services (KJFS) provide winter clothing and presents to local families during the Hanukkah season. This is a wonderful opportunity to practice tzedakah (righteous giving) at a local level. Last year, over 100 children received gifts and warm clothes through this program.
Pregnancy & Infant Loss Remembrance Day Havdalah Service
Saturday, October 14, 7:30 PM
Congregation Bet Ha’am, 81 Westbrook St. South Portland
Please join the Jewish community as we create a service to give support, love, and remembrance to those who have experienced tragedy during pregnancy or soon thereafter. Families do not have to grieve in silence. Following a brief Havdalah service (a ceremony that marks the end of Shabbat) and candle lighting recognizing family loss, families will have the opportunity to connect, share, and support one another. Child care provided upon request. Contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
