Community Action
NVJCA has donated over 1,000# of staples and personal care items to the Foothills Food Bank for the 2019 calendar year.  Don’t forget, we collect at every NVJCA event.  For monthly requests or if you are interested in volunteering at the foodbank, check out www.foothillsfoodbank.com.  Birthday bags for a boy or girl(cups, plates, napkins, prizes) are always appreciated.

NVJCA Adopt a Family
NVJCA adopted two families from the Foothills Food Bank with a total of 10 people.  Elaine and Nea purchased the family wish requests.  A big thank you to Anthem Pets for the beautiful wrapping.

Social and Educational

Adult Education by Stan Rose
Date:        Wednesday, December 18th, 7:30 PM
Topic:        Jewish Christmas Songs
Four years ago, we looked at all the secular Christmas songs that were actually written by Jews. More than half of the songs at that time had either a Jewish composer, lyricist or signature singer.

We’ve updated that list for 2019 and now Jews have added even more  to the Holiday Hit Parade. We’ll take a look at the impressive repertoire of “Jewish Christmas Songs” at our next session of Adult Jewish Education… Wednesday evening, December 18th at 7:30.
