BIG SUNDAY!

Beth Shir Shalom is partnering with Macedonia Baptist Church and Macedonia Development Corp. in Watts  to organize a Big Sunday volunteer project on 

Saturday, May 9th from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm.

We will be planting shrubs next to railroad tracks and adjacent to a park near the church.  We need temple members to sign up to volunteer.  No experience necessary (of course if you do have experience planting shrubs that would be helpful). 

Kids 8 and older are welcome. 

Big Sunday has posted our joint project on their website: www.bigsunday.org.  Our project # is 177.

Feel free to email Marlene Cole at  marlscole@yahoo.com with any questions.

As Speaker Boehner and Majority Leader McConnell begin the 114th Congress,
we need to let them know that racial justice is a top priority of American Jews and it must be for Congress, too. 
This is a well written, to the point petition to which I encourage you add your name.

Don’t let the Congress defund immigration reform!

President Obama announced his executive action on immigration at the end of last year.  

That landmark reform shielded up to five million people from the terrifying threat of deportation.

Now, Republicans in Congress are trying to roll back these reforms, and worse. We can’t let that happen.
