Welcome to May! This time of year is literally springing forth with new life and opportunities. If you would like to take advantage of the many opportunities to help the local area–whether it is the planting we have going on May 19th to help keep Geneva beautiful, the Wednesday nights at Pushing the Envelope Farm helping to feed our neighbors, our monthly cooking for Lazarus House, or upcoming Swedish Days events–please read on for more details. All of these events invite us to help others, and what better way to instill a sense of community among Jews and our partners, family and friends, than to give of ourselves?!?
Another opportunity to come together is our May 11th Shabbat Evening which will be led by Rachel Yackley and will take place at Peck Farm. For those of you new to that venue, it is an absolutely ideal location for our services during the spring and summer months! Rachel will be leading us through a brief service–complete with storytelling–before we enjoy a meal and good conversation together. As always, this is a family and interfaith friendly event!
Please take one of these opportunities to join us in helping our neighbors and getting to know our FVJNeighbors a little better in the process!
As always, the best to you and yours and we hope to see you at a FVJN event very soon!
