Shedding New Light on Jewish Traditions

Or Hadash Mitzvah Project - Inter-Faith Housing Network

November 2016 Or Hadash Inter-Faith Sign Up

This November (2016), we will be co-hosting up to three families through the Inter-Faith Housing Network. The families will be staying at St. Thomas Episcopal Church in the building known as the "School House" at the corner of Bethlehem Pike and Camp Hill Road, in Whitemarsh Township.  

From Wednesday, November 16 through the morning of Thursday, December 1, 2016, we need volunteers to drive families who do not have their own transportation to St. Thomas in the late afternoon (around 5:45 pm).  We need volunteers to prepare (or purchase) a meal and bring it to St. Thomas to have a sit-down family style dinner.  We also need volunteers to stay overnight and help keep the families safe.  We are truly 'hosts' and try to make the families feel welcome! 

More information is below - next to each sign up - and you will receive much more detailed information after you sign up, as either Shelley Sanders, Rabbi Vivian or Jennifer Hoagland will send you an e-mail with further instructions as well as directions to the School House and a map.  You will also receive an automatic reminder e-mail about 3 days before your assignment.  If you have any questions, please contact Jennifer Hoagland at (215) 806-9159 or
