We need your help and your stuff for our annual Rummage Sale. Our goal is to make $2000-$3000. Please start going through your household items and furniture, pictures, women’s and children’s clothing and shoes, as well as books and games. We can’t do this without your precious donations!
Chocolate Seder Remix – April 2017
Last Sunday, Temple Shalom’s Sisterhood celebrated Passover with a Socially Responsible Chocolate Seder. Most of the chocolate served was fair trade and the Haggadah was designed to help members learn about the unfair practices of non-fair trade cacao plantations, with the trafficking of children to be used as forced labor in the harvesting of the cacao pods, the use of dangerous equipment such as machetes, and the fact that the plantation owners do not pay the farmer a fair wage.
