GTJ’s First Ever Community Service Event: Sukkah-Building

We’ve done our best to listen to what you, the DC Jewish community, want, and community service opportunities seem to be very high on the wish list. Starting this September, we’ll do our best to provide a bi-monthly opportunity to serve the DC community (Jewish some months, gentile others).

Are you ready to get involved, help others, and meet new friends?  Join GTJ and the Jewish Foundation for Group Homes (JFGH) for a Sukkah-building service event, organized by GTJ Jewish Girl of the Year, Ariana Heideman.  We are looking for volunteers who are willing to build and decorate Sukkahs for adults with disabilities.  You don’t have to be handy, just willing to lend a hand!  The event will be on Sunday, September 30th from 11:30-2:00pm in Silver Spring.  Carpools will be arranged from the closest Metro stop.

Please click here to sign-up. The deadline is September 21st.

Do you have a car? We are looking for volunteers to drive groups from the Metro to houses. For questions, e-mail

[…] I spent my first Friday Shabbat at MesorahDC’s services and dinner.  The food was delicious and everyone, including Rabbi T and Rabbi Berkman, made me feel extremely comfortable.  The next night, with some new friends from Mesorah, I headed out to Clark and Shaina’s engagement party.  Sadly, I missed Clark’s flash mob proposal. Overall, I would say a highly successful first weekend in DC and I’m looking forward to many more. If you are not busy Sunday, September 30, you can come out, meet me, and help make another one of my weekends awesome by joining me in building sukkahs for GTJ’s first ever community service event!
