IKAR Refugee Support – The Big Fill
We’re collecting gently used and new clothing and linens as well as medical supplies for Save the Syrian Children. Along with LA Jewish community partners, we’re working to fill a shipping container with supplies that will be delivered to displaced people inside Syria. Bring your donations to services or the ECC from now until April 1. Sign up to help sort donations at Temple Emanuel on April 8.

In the developing world, education is the single most effective way to improve children’s health and likelihood of survival, protect their dignity, and work toward a more just and dynamic society. Since 2011, our community has been in partnership with the village of Katira, Uganda. Through Innovation: Africa, we have brought Israel-developed solar technology to the primary school, medical clinic and to the newly constructed, IKAR-funded secondary school.
