**Purim Tzedakah Drive: One of the mitzvot of Purim is giving matanot la’evyonim (gifts to the poor). This year, Beth Am has TWO Purim tzedakah recipients (collection bins are located for both in the Sanctuary Foyer and Main Office):
- We are collecting new or gently used bras (in good shape only) to give to Be A Dear and Donate a Brassiere, a nonprofit organization started in 2009 which has donated over 10,000 bras to local Bay Area homeless shelters. Bra donations should have all hooks working, no stains or pulled elastic. Diverse sizes needed.
- We are collecting school supplies to donate to Haven Family House, a Menlo Park location of LifeMoves. This project is coordinated through BAJY (Beth Am Junior Youth), who has organized the collection. Here is a suggested items listing.
$1 discount off admission for every item you bring to donate to one of our tzedakah recipients.
A special thanks to Beth Am Women for providing funding to update carnival games this year!
