Shabbat Message for November 22
November 22, 2013 | Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Detroit
This coming week will be a once in an 80,000 year experience when the first full day of Hanukah coincides with Thanksgiving Day. There have been songs, videos, stories and articles galore mashing up the two holidays. My mash up is between the appreciation we focus on during Thanksgiving and the Miracle that surrounds our Hanukah celebration. Many in our community are thankful on a daily basis for the lifesaving miracles they receive from the 17 Federation agencies in our community, though we know the energy, support, effort and “miracles” performed each day by our community staff and volunteers could not happen without the support of all of you. Your gift to Federation makes miracles happen with the utmost of gratitude.
Speaking of gratitude, we would be so grateful for your help in attaining our year end goal of reaching 4,600 women donors to our community. If each of you reaches out to just ONE friend (who has not given to our Jewish Community recently) and ask them for an $18 gift that would make a huge impact on our efforts. All you need to do is think of that friend, email Jennifer Levine at jlevine@JFMD.org to find out if she made a current (2013) gift and, if not, ask her to join you in supporting our community. One simple act can create miracles and gratitude for so many.
Wishing you a Sweet Shabbat, a Joyous Thanksgiving and a Happy Hanukah,
Support the Relief Efforts for Victims of Hurricane Harvey
