Congregation Solel

Housewarming for Congregation Solel-sponsored refugee family

“You shall not oppress a stranger, since you yourselves know the feelings of a stranger, for you also were strangers in the land of Egypt.”       -Exodus(23:9)

Congregation Solel is co-sponsoring a refugee family with Refugee One over the coming months.  As part of our commitment to this family, we will be furnishing an apartment and stocking it with groceries for their arrival.  

Please use this form to sign up to donate home furnishings and essentials to support this act of Tikkun Olam.  

There are two opportunities to bring your donated items to Solel:

  • April 13 we will hold a Housewarming Shower after the 7:30pm Shabbat service
  • April 15, items may be dropped at Solel from 9:45am-12:00pm during religious school.  

For assistance with larger furnishings, please contact Marsha Seligman [email protected]

*The quantity of items marked with an asterisk will vary dependent upon the number of people in a family. 

Questions? Email Solel congregant Marcia Denberg at [email protected] or Lisa Kaplan at [email protected]
