On May 31, the Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center hosted a fundraiser for the earthquake victims in Nepal. It was a wonderful success, selling out two days before the event. We raised almost $3,000 that will be donated to the American Jewish World Service, who have partners on the ground in Nepal, helping the most disenfranchised of the Nepalese community.
I would like to thank Rabbi Caryn Broitman, the Hebrew Center and all the volunteers for hosting this event and underwriting it, so that every dollar we raised can go directly to the people who are in need.
Veterans, merchant mariners and others involved in past and present service will be recognized at the 16th annual service honoring veterans at the Shabbat service at the Martha’s Vineyard Hebrew Center on Friday, Nov. 14.
Yuval Elizur, former deputy editor and economics reporter for Israel’s largest daily newspaper Ma’ariv, will be the guest speaker following the Shabbat service at the Hebrew Center on Friday, May 2, at 5:30 p.m.
