COMING UP

                        WELCOMING GUESTS                           הכנסת אורחים                

A request has come from our partner, Keeping Our Promise. There is a periodic need for short term housing when apartments are not immediately available. We would like to maintain a list of friends who would be willing to host. The preference is for households that, while not necessarily kosher, do not have pork products in the home. Also, if the home were close to a bus route, that would be very helpful (to permit the newcomer(s) to learn how to get around independently. If you've been watching the news, you'll know that hosting Afghans is truly helping to rescue people from an extremely dangerous situation. Thanks. 

Please contact Margie Searl at mbsearl@gmail.com or 585 260 2306. Many, many thanks.

 

 

    Attention any and all TBK LANDLORDS

If you have a 3 bedroom apartment renting for $1100 or less please consider contacting the Social Action Committee next time it’s available so that we can help fill it!

As the U.S. withdraws from Afghanistan the State Dept is starting once again to issue long delayed Special Immigrant Visas for those individuals and their families who have helped our troops. Some of those families will be coming to Rochester due to the efforts of  Keeping Our Promise, a local organization with whom TBK partners. Apartments of this size and price range are increasingly hard to find and any leads will be gratefully received.

Please contact  Josh Herz at joshuajherz@gmail.com.

 

     Rochester Area Holocaust Survivors

Friends of Mount Hope has created an online Holocaust archive as a resource for memorializing Holocaust survivors and those who died: https://fomh.org/cemetery/holocaust-archive/

We would like to make our temple community aware of it and also request help to add any names that we have missed. For more information, please contact Margie Searl at  mbsearl@gmail.com
