From Cantor Harriet: “I have received 90 gorgeous handmade kippot from the Luka Jewish Community in Mbale, Uganda! The community is struggling and in need of support to purchase food after suffering severe drought this summer followed by devastating floods. Up to 75 families in the village are only able to afford 1 meal a day. They are also in need of prayer books, specifically High Holiday Machzorim of which TBC has about 200 that are no longer in use.
“Please purchase one or more of these lovely kippot for $18 a piece so that we can use the proceeds to ship 100 Machzorim to the community and send the balance of the proceeds to purchase food! Please make checks payable to: Temple B’nai Chaim, with “TBC Social Action Fund-Ugandan Jewry” in the memo line. Additional donations are welcome through the TBC Social Action Fund on the TBC Donation Page with a note indicating “Ugandan Jewry” as the recipient.
“100% of the proceeds will go to feeding this community and shipping them High Holiday Machzorim!”
