This year’s High Holidays looked different for many of us -- unable to join together in the sanctuary with the glow of candlelights, the crisp air of a fresh new fall, and the warm embrace of our families and community.
As a lover of stained glass who has picked up the craft, I set about making a replica of our Temple’s windows as a way to bring the sacredness of that space into a home, into a family Shabbat. In return, I’d like the piece to generate funds for those that still seek sanctuary - that still need our community and our country to share in the dignity of housing and refuge.
The pictured Ohef Sholom Stained Glass Shabbat Candle Set is available for raffle, and all proceeds will benefit the Caring Committee, which supports the newly created Love Thy Neighbor initiative as well as our Soup Kitchen and other tikkun olam (repairing the world) programs. $10 = 1 ticket!
Tickets can be purchased through November 20.
Thank you for your generosity. Through it,
may we bring some sanctuary into a home
and open sanctuary to those not currently
within its warmth and safety.
Drawing to be held on November 23.
