TBE/Detroit friends - we have all been watching the devastation in Houston, and many people have been asking how we can help. Temple Beth El is partnering with Congregation Beth Israel - Houston, TX to assist the good people of the Temple who must rebuild their lives in the coming months. The needs will be staggering, Rabbi David Lyon has suggested that gift cards to Target, Home Depot, and other essentials will be a good place to start.
Please bring gift cards, cash or check of any denomination (TBE will purchase gift cards on your behalf) to the office at TBE, and we will make sure they get to the Temple in Houston, where they can be distributed immediately to those who need them most.
Please share this, and watch for more information about additional steps we can take together in coming days. Pray for Houston, but don't forget to take some action to help the real people at a Temple just like ours who are suffering .
For more information, please feel free to contact our Director of Communication, Lindsey Fox-Wagner, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
