Pledge to Stand Up For The Other

Hatred will only end when we confront it. Won't you pledge to stand up with us? Add your name to our "Stand Up to Bigotry Wall" in the front lobby by going to
Pledge: While interacting with members of my own faith, or ethinic, or gender community, or with others, if I hear hateful comments from anyone about members of any other community, I pledge to stand up for the other and speak up to challenge bigotry in any form.  

Backpacks and School Supply Collection - by Aug 4

Help the Lois Bronz Children's Center of Greenburgh send all its kids to school with a new backpack filled with new school supplies. We're collecting backpacks for elementary school students and (only) the following new school supplies: crayons, glue sticks, rulers, pencils, erasers, pencil cases, folders, and 100 page spiral notebooks. Remember that excitement on the first day of school? Let's send each student with a new backpack and school supplies and create that enthusiasm and self confidence for a great school year.

Refugee Task Force

We support HIAS' efforts to expand refugee resettlement to Westchester and have been approved to become a co-host organization with Bet Am Shalom in White Plains. Although the current immigration policy is in flux, the situation could change quickly and we could receive immediate notice about a family coming to Westchester. We are working on housing, education, employment, language and many needed areas, including fundraising to support a family for about a year. With Bet Am Shalom, the JCC and others, we have raised  over $45,000 in pledges.
