Tzedek Council’s Annual Light of Giving
Dec 12 @ 11:00 am – 2:00 pm

Calling all givers of light! Please register to participate in our 4th Annual Light of Giving, hosted by Tzedek Council. As a community, we will assemble much-needed home goods for single adults who have experienced chronic homelessness.

This year’s effort will support our new partner HomeRise, whose “housing first” mission focuses on stabilizing residents and providing essential foundations and wraparound support. HomeRise’s newly-constructed Mission Bay South Block 9 (MB9) will permanently house 141 single adults beginning this spring. The majority of residents are people of color and many are mobility-impaired.

Light of Giving will take place at Emanu-El on Sunday, December 12 from 11:00 am – 12:00 pm or 1:00 pm – 2:00 pm. You are invited to join us in the Main Sanctuary Foyer for a festive gathering of community, action and celebration, as we assemble Modeh Ani Baskets filled with linens and kitchen staples. Modeh Ani is a Jewish prayer that is said upon waking each morning as an expression of gratitude for the gift of life.

Participants will have the opportunity to create personalized greetings and special art projects to illuminate the living spaces at MB9. Together, we will bring light and life to vulnerable adults in our community this Chanukah season!

Light of Giving participants should bring pre-purchased home goods estimated at $75-$100 to the event; Tzedek Council will supply Modeh Ani baskets for assembling.

Not able to join us at Light of Giving? You can still bring light by donating towards the purchase of appliances for MB9’s residents.
