JFS launches 50 Acts of Kindness Project at TBE's Religious School

On Sunday, Jan. 9, Jewish Family Service launched the 50 Acts of Kindness Project, part of JFS’s yearlong 50th Anniversary celebration. Volunteer Coordinator Chelsea Karp and Board members Michael Finley and Stuart Horowitz joined a Temple Beth El Religious School assembly program via Zoom to discuss mitzvot, the value of small acts of kindness, and the mission of JFS. Finley then introduced the Cozy Toes Project to the children.

The response was amazing! During the month of January, members of the religious school family donated 400 pairs of socks. Both project coordinator Finley and Karp delivered the socks to the Sixth Street Shelter, where Julie Huber accepted them with great appreciation.

The Kindness Committee focuses on small, discrete tasks that improve the lives of members of our community. It schedules several projects each month. The effort will continue through the end of December 2022. Most projects require only an hour of time per volunteer.
