Re-imagining The Holidays 2013 & 2015
In select recent years, we have invited you and your family to join us in redefining our relationship with the holidays, allowing us to make the spiritual choice to redirect half of our holiday spending to values-based giving.
In 2013, we worked together to support “The House That Love Built” through Habitat for Humanity.
In 2015, we partnered with Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative to expand the ways we can give the gift of home. As a congregation, we raised $70,000 to support the work of Beacon. The mission of Beacon Interfaith Housing Collaborative:
“Inspired by social justice and guided by our many faiths, creating homes for those in need, building community for all.”
