Don’t Hang Up on Refugees
As part of our upcoming Refugee Relief Mission to Greece and Germany, we are collecting used tablets and smartphones for a computer literacy center at a refugee shelter in Berlin. Please bring your gently used tablets and smartphones to the bin in the lobby.
In Friday’s sermon, Rabbi Ammiel Hirsch will talk about our mission and how you can get involved. Join us in the sanctuary at 6 p.m. or watch live on Facebook or at www.swfs.org/live.
Volunteers Needed in May and June
For more than 30 years, community members have helped run our on-site homeless shelter, which provides a warm and safe environment for 10 men, five nights a week, nine months of the year.
We currently need volunteers to sleep at the shelter between May 1 and June 16. Sleepover volunteers arrive by 8 p.m. and leave by 6:15 a.m. To learn more, email .
Calling All New York City Area Jewish Teens!
This fall, Stephen Wise Free Synagogue will launch a new brand to capture the attention of the next generation of Jewish New Yorkers, with offerings made accessible to teens all over the city.
As part of this initiative, we are gathering diverse insights from prospective users to inform a co-design process with teens, parents, and other key stakeholders. Please ask students in grades 6 through 12 to complete our five-minute survey; no prior Jewish experience is required. All participants who opt to share their emails will be entered into a raffle to win $50 Apple gift cards!
