WEST NYACK, N.Y. -- The Jewish Federation of Rockland County will hold its annual Super Sunday event at the Rockland Jewish Community Campus in West Nyack on Sunday, Jan. 24.
Hundreds of individuals, community groups and families are expected to attend to volunteer and enjoy special events throughout the day.
Super Sunday is part of Rockland Federation’s annual campaign to raise money for programs that aid those in need and help sustain a vibrant Jewish community in Rockland, Israel and in more than 60 countries worldwide.
Volunteers are trained to make phone calls to ask for donations, and there are four phone shifts with the first beginning at 9:30 a.m. and the last shift ending at 3 p.m. Teens are encouraged to volunteer to earn community service hours.
Refreshments and lunch will be provided.
The Jewish Federation’s PJ Library, a program that delivers free Jewish books and music to local children, will hold a Superhero Super Sunday event at 11:30 a.m.for kids ages 2 and over (with chaperone). Children are invited to come in costume and give back to the “real” superheroes by creating cards for Kosher Troops–Jewish U.S. servicemen and women who are stationed overseas.
Kids will also take photos with U.S. and Israeli soldiers in uniform and celebrate Tu B’Shvat, the Jewish New Year of the Trees, by making tree-themed crafts.
Pizza and snacks will be served to all participating children and the event is free with advanced registration by clicking here and $3 at the door.
According to Gary Siepser, chief executive officer of the Jewish Federation of Rockland County, "Super Sunday is so important to our community because it's an opportunity to connect and share the life-saving work of the Jewish Federation. It’s an impactful way to bring the community together to do good and to support our critical work.”
