The trip will include registration, travel and hotel to be joining the Agudath Sholom AIPAC delegation.
To be one of the three selected here's what to do...
Submit in a 500 word essay- "WHY DOES AIPAC NEED YOU?"
If you could lobby to the members of Congress on Capitol Hill, what would you say? What case would you present about the issues affecting the United States and Israel?
This event is not a fund-raiser but a consciousness-raiser in anticipation of the opening of our beautiful new mikvah.
Whether you use the mikvah or not, this event is designed to bring women together in a judgment free environment to share perspectives and experiences and to offer insights and information.
We look forward to your participation.
A TREE FOR EVERY CHILD
Join the CAS Youth
Department as we help to rebuild and renew the
Carmel Forest in celebration of Tu B'Shvat
Following the recent Carmel Fire, the road to recovery for Israel has just begun. Staying true to our commitment as a community to care for the needs of the land and people of Israel, we will help rebuild and renew the Carmel Forest. Think about yourself, your children, your grandchildren, your parents. Everyone is someone's child and we are asking every family in our shul to plant one tree per family member. The more trees the better. There were five million trees destroyed in the Carmel forest fire. Our goal is to help Israel rise from this devastation and show the land and the people that we are here to rebuild side by side with them. Please check our shul website, our weekly bulletin, and your email for the Agudath Sholom JNF custom webpage address where you can donate directly to the Jewish National Fund link on our website by Clicking here
The idea of Tu B'Shvat celebrates renewal in nature but it can also be seen as a personal renewal.The Tanach says, 'Ki ha'adam etz ha'sadeh hu,' which means 'Man is likened to a tree." The roots of a tree run deep below the ground and are its strength and stability. Let us show Israel in her time of great need that we will help to replant her trees. That we- in her time of great need will literally put down roots in her soil. Our message to Israel and her people at this very critical time must be that we will share our strength as a Jewish people to help regain stability in Eretz Yisrael, our land and our home.
