Community Service with TI

We have another great opportunity for Community Service on Sunday May 3. The Tifereth Israel Social Action Committee has asked us to join them in a project with the Behrend Builders fixing up a homeless shelter. Behrend Builders is a great organization and we’re thrilled to be involved in one of their projects. We’re also pleased to join TI in this project.

The cost per participant is $12, and anyone age 14 or older can participate.
