The Silver Spring Jewish Center has been an integral part of the community for 47 years. We provide numerous services throughout the Montgomery County area including the Hebrew Sheltering Home. Recently, we have decided to focus our efforts to bring the younger generation into doing more community service projects locally on a consistent basis, beyond what the local High Schools may require. We have therefore created the “Reach Out, Give Back” program. We will be hosting monthly events where local teens can give their time to meaningful, yet fun, community service projects to benefit the elderly, homeless, victims of abuse, and those in need.
Our first monthly program will occur Sunday, Oct.19th and will be in support of area homeless. Our goal is to make our community a better place and to get teens motivated into a life-long quest to “Reach Out and Give Back” to those in need. The October 19 event will start at 5:30pm at the Silver Spring Jewish Center at 1401 Arcola Avenue. Each Service activity will be followed by a Kosher dinner and a supervised social activity. In the case of the October 19 event it will be a film. The only cost to the student will be $3.00 to help cover the cost of the meal. The event should end by about 9pm.
We are confident that this will prove a worthwhile and enjoyable activity for all that participate. This program is open to the entire Montgomery County Jewish community. Please feel free to pass this note along to the family of any Jewish High School students that you may know.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
