One of the young men in our congregation, Justin Tuell, has a Bar Mitzvah project of interest to MoTAS. Justin is collecting gently used sporting goods for the Hollenbeck Youth Center. While the kids do enjoy new items, if someone has gently used gear that would be good, too. At the center they do karate, boxing, basketball, baseball, soccer (seasonal), and Flag football (seasonal). They also have a weight room there for the high schoolers. Justin has put a container in the hallway at the temple for donations, or arrangements can be made to rendezvous at the temple to pick up any donations. In addition, donations can be made on the Hollenbeckpbc.org website. Justin’s bar mitzvah is August 2 and he is working hard to prepare. Call 818-271-8968 if you have any questions.
