Bundles of kindness

While preparing her community project for her Bat Mitzvah in 2018, Temple Aliyah member, Rachael Rosenberg founded Bundles of Kindness with the goal to produce 100 individual care packages or “Bundles of Kindness”, that will include many items needed by someone who is homeless. She had seen across Southern California those who are battling with homelessness, and she knew there was more she could do to help them.

She was able to meet her goal and has now raised it to 500 care packeges! The bundles are created with items donated to support Rachael's cause; items such as socks, toiletries, blankets, etc. The Shabbat Retreat is proud to support Rachael by collecting donation items to assemble into care packages at the retreat. Please review the list of suggested items and bring what you can to the retreat!
