Rockdale Reaches Out

Hello Rockdale members:

Cincinnati has so many refugees and new undocumented immigrants who are in need of help to become independent. There are all kinds of ways to help, volunteer, donate, and support!

While we are under quarantine, our volunteer activities are largely reduced, but the needs are great. Consider donating money to local food pantries, Heartfelt Tidbits, or Tikkun Farms - they are providing food for refugees (and other in-need families).  

I look forward to Rockdale Temple's member involvement with the refugee and new-to-USA communities.

Looking ahead…. 
Volunteers and support will be needed for summer camp in June (dates TBD) at Academy of World Languages. The program will need daily volunteers (helpers as well as instructors for science and fitness) and funding (for snacks, supplies, bus trip).
 
Tikkun Farm in Mt Healthy is duly named as a place which fosters “healing the world."  It is the picture of  tikkun olam. They have a full slate of great programs. On “volunteer days,” volunteers can come and go as they want, and help with any project at the farm, as well as learn about the farm. I will be at the Volunteer Day on Saturday, July 11, 12:30-4:30pm. Join me😊  Also, I would love to have a Rockdale-and-friends group attend the “Seasonal Drum Circle” on Saturday, June 20, 6:00-8:00pm. There will be a potluck dinner. We could make it a Havdallah service, and learn about the farm. Go to http://www.tikkunfarm.com/ for more information.
 
Please contact me for any and all questions and interest level!
Thanks,
Cora Steinberg
