Blood Drive (Sun, Mar 25)

Come join us from 11 to 2 on Sunday, March 25, for our blood drive.

LifeSouth will bring the Bloodmobile and their friendly staff. Bring a healthy, well-fed, well-hydrated you. Bring a friend. Bring all of your local friends, for that matter!

LifeSouth says,
To give blood you must be in good health, 17 years or older (or 16 with parental permission), weigh at least 110 pounds and show a valid photo I.D.
Good health? Yep. Remember that iron supplement if you need it.

At least 110 lbs? Got it (and then some, and, if you're like me, then some more)!

17+ years old? Let's not get into exact might not be polite.

As Mike says, "If you can please donate; it is desperately needed and it will be a mitzvah for our congregation."

Promises, Film and Discussion (Sun, Mar 4)

Please join us for the next event in the Beth Shalom Cultural Arts Series.

At 1:00 p.m. on Sunday, March 4, the Series is co-sponsoring the film "Promises" with The Jule Collins Smith Museum.

Allen Furr will moderate a Q&A discussion panel. Light refreshments will be served.

About the movie:
Promises is a beautiful and deeply moving portrait of seven Palestinian and Israeli children. Emmy award-winning and Academy award nominat-ed, Promises follows the journey of a filmmaker who meets these children in and around Jerusalem, from a Palestinian refugee camp to an Israeli settlement in the West Bank. Although they live only 20 minutes apart, these children exist in completely separate worlds, divided by physical, historical and emotional boundaries. Promises explores the nature of these boundaries and tells the story of a few children who dared to cross the lines to meet their neighbors.
