HIHI – Huntington Interfaith Homeless Initiative – Thanks to the support of Rabbi Kurshan and the HJC Board, HJC continues to be an official host of the HIHI program this winter. This program was started by the Family Service League several years ago that provides shelter to a group of homeless men each night during the cold winter months in a number of different churches & synagogues in the Huntington area. We will be hosting the men for 7 nights this winter, 6 Wednesday nights, the night of Christmas. We will be looking for volunteers and will be sending more information as we approach the fall. We have a volunteer training session with the Family service League scheduled at HJC for Oct. 25th at 7:30 PM. To help us with the supplies we need, click: HIHI SUPPLY DRIVE 2011-2012 Revised If you have any questions, please contact either: Ellen Steinberg email@example.com or Karen Flanzenbaum firstname.lastname@example.org

HELP HJC FEED FAMILIES AND CHILDREN IN NEED ~ SUPPORT THE JEWISH NUTRITIONAL NETWORK (JNN) AT HJC - For years the dedicated volunteers of our JNN have been there to help feed those in need. In the midst of these economically challenging times, the need dramatically has increased with JNN now preparing meals for around 200 individuals and lunches for over 40 school children. The increased demand for food for those in need has strained the JNN’s finances. PLEASE HELP the JNN continue to provide a meal to a family or child in need. DONATE TODAY AT http://www.hjcny.org/donations/mitzvah-opportunities/ or by mail to HJC.
HJC is Participating in National Donor Sabbath Month to Increase Awareness for Organ, Eye and Tissue Donation in New York November is designated as National Donor Sabbath Month. HJC’s Social Action Committee is working with the New York Organ Donor Network along with numerous houses of worship across the Greater New York metropolitan area to share the powerful message of life-saving donation and transplantation. During the campaign, the Donor Network asks each of us to remember the greatest gift—the gift of life. This is a blessing which many New Yorkers find out of reach, especially those waiting patiently for life-saving transplants. By registering today as organ, eye and tissue donors, individuals provide hope to the more than 112,000 men, women and children currently on the national waiting list. 8, 000 of those individuals waiting are located here in the New York metropolitan area. For more information about how to get involved, please contact Miriam Eckstein-Koas at email@example.com. To sign up to be an organ donor today or for more information about donation, please visit www.SaveLivesNewYork.org. Check out this important clip: http://youtu.be/B8H9wfZbTXc
