Chazak v’ Ematz (Be Strong and Courageous)

Please plan to attend the Seaboard Region Spring Conference on Sunday, May 23, from 10:00am - 2:00pm, on Zoom. There is no charge to attend, however, registration is required. We will be b’yachad (together) for a timely and inspiring virtual gathering focused on education, reflection, and celebration of our new and outgoing leaders.

This conference will help us emerge from the pandemic with a deeper understanding of the needs of our greater community so we can respond with strength and courage (Chazak v’ Ematz). Our keynote speakers will be Kyle Fradkin, Deputy Director of Public Policy at MAZON, and Nechama Masliansky, Senior Advocacy Advisor for So Others May Eat (SOME). They will increase our awareness and understanding in two critical areas, food insecurity (hunger) and homelessness, and give us tools to help alleviate these societal scourges.

Conference highlights also include a guided Prayer Meditation, Torah Fund presentation, and the Election and Installation of our Region Board for 2021-2024.  Be assured, there also will be time for schmoozing!

In the run-up to the Conference, Olam Tikvah Sisterhood is partnering with Cat B’s “Cat Cares” simchat mitzvah project to collect food for Food for Others (see “Cat Cares” information below). This is in support of WLCJ’s Project Stock the Shelves.  

Questions? Please contact: 

Barbara Finkel, Conference Chair
Marcia Lawson, Communications

We look forward to seeing many Olam Tikvah Sisterhood members on May 23!!

Cat Cares: Project Stock the Shelves, a Community Service Initiative 
Now through June

Hello! I’m Cat B. For my Simchat Mitzvah project, I am collaborating with Congregation Olam Tikvah’s Sisterhood’s program, Stock the Shelves. Project Stock the Shelves is an effort by all Seaboard Sisterhoods and other WLCJ Sisterhoods to help local organizations reduce food scarcity. We will be collecting food for Food for Others, a local organization that helps families in need. We need YOUR help now, more than ever, because food scarcity in our Community is at an all-time high. More than 70,000 people live in poverty in Fairfax County, one of the Nation’s wealthiest regions. Food for Others distributes food to more than 2,600 local families in need each week. We will be running this collection through the end of June. The most needed items are:

Canned soups
Canned chili
Canned chicken
Canned spaghetti sauce
Canned fruit

Ways to donate:
A monetary donation can be made HERE. Please list my email address (katelynboyett10@gmail.com) so I can keep track of our wonderful progress!

A food donation can be made HERE. Food will be shipped directly to Food for Others.

Thank you for supporting Stock the Shelves and Cat Cares!
