OUR BTBJ COMMUNITY WIDE SOCIAL ACTION EVENT

Supporting our Healthcare and Frontline Responders

Like many communities, we have members at BTBJ who are nurses, doctors, staff, first responders and so many other essential workers helping to keep our healthcare system going. These individuals go to work every day to help our neighbors and friends. They all have stressful jobs on a normal day but fighting this virus makes their jobs so much harder. Many leave their families and don't know if their own exposure may end up getting them sick or requiring quarantine from beloved family. We want them to know that we love and appreciate their bravery, dedication and selflessness.

On April 21st, we will kick off a community wide campaign to show our support and encouragement to these dedicated and hardworking professionals.

Here is how YOU can help:              thankyou_paper_hdr.jpg

Cards of Love and Support. Make a card, a sign, a heart, a smiley face, anything with words of encouragement, thanks, love and support. These tokens of appreciation will be delivered to the Emergency Room staff and medical professionals at both Temple University Hospital and Abington Hospital, where several of our congregants' work. A little something to say thank you for all they do.

The entire BTBJ community is invited get in on this crafty mitzvah on Tuesday April 21st.

  • In the morning, the Early Childhood Center teachers will make cards with the children during their zoom time.
  • At 4:30pm, Religious School children will learn about the mitzvot we are doing, and they will be introduced to the card making process and share ideas for continued love and support. More information will come directly from the Religious School
  • At 7:00pm, the entire congregation is invited to participate in a 30 minute Craft Zoom.  Please refer to your email for Zoom ID and password to log on to hear about the project, get inspired, share your ideas and work together as community.

Contribution toward the purchase of platters of food. If you are not feeling particularly crafty, we are also collecting financial donations that will go toward buying and delivering to the ER staff individually wrapped, grab and go food from some of our local community owned restaurants (such as Bagel House and Lees Hoagies). You can of course do both - make a card and give money for food if you are able!  All amounts are welcome. Please donate below.
