To honor the late Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Temple Beth Hillel-Beth El will hold a day of service on MLK Day. From 10 a.m. to noon, the program will be geared to families with young children, and will include activities such as making get-well cards for members of the community, making TLC bags for hospitalized children, making Purim decorations for senior centers and engaging in a variety of other educational activities and service projects.
The afternoon projects will have a culinary focus: from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m., volunteers will be preparing meals for seniors, as well as making sandwiches and soup for those in need.
Leading up to MLK Day, there will also be a toiletry collection taking place at the synagogue.
