Pick something…

Pick one thing – one small thing – that you can give today. Not money. Not canned food. Not a sweater or piece of jewelry. Not that kind of gift…

The gift of you…

What’s one thing you can do to make yourself a gift today? Give compassion. Give encouragement. Give undivided attention, or a smile.

Now give it!

Today, put in a little bit of extra effort to give that gift – the gift of you – to someone else. Someone at work… Someone at home… Someone at Temple Aliyah…

Because…

If our Aliyah family is already amazing (and you know we are…), imagine how extraordinary we’ll be if we each try just a little bit harder…

The really fun part:

Come find your name on our steps!  If you submitted your gift, it’ll be on the front steps by Rosh Hashanah.  Unfortunately we’re all out of space and can’t take any new pledges, but that doesn’t mean you can’t still be a gift! 

We hope to see you soon!  Thank you for participating in our #beagift campaign!
