4th Night for Others
5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 25, 2019
Consider a break from presents in your house and instead shop for winter clothes for homeless youths, served by Northwest Youth Services. Bring the unwrapped items, plus your menorah (if possible), and dinner to share to our 4th Night celebration on Dec. 25, 2019. We will light candles as a community. Donated items (most needed are all-genders underwear, socks, winter shoes, coats) go to the nonprofit Northwest Youth Services, which serves homeless, runaway, and at-risk youth ages 13 to 25 in Whatcom and Skagit Counties. You can also shop on their Amazon Wish List, www.nwys.org/get-involved and ship items directly to the Northwest Youth Services office, 1155 N. State St., Suite 700, Bellingham WA 98225. Or consider donating Fred Meyer Scrip purchased through Beth Israel. We hope you’ll join us in this mitzvah.
