VALUE OUR VETS ON VETERANS DAY

This Sunday, November 11, is Veterans Day, the day on which we remember and honor men and women of the armed forces. What better way for members of Women's League for Conservative Judaism to commemorate this day then to contribute to the 2012 biennial convention's Value Our Vets chesed project.

In this initiative, Women's League members have undertaken the commitment to provide food and necessities for veterans (and their families) who stay temporarily at the West Los Angeles Fisher House while undergoing medical treatment at the Los Angeles VA facility. We are asking sisterhoods, individual members, family, and friends to provide gift cards for local grocery stores, restaurants and pharmacies that will help defray some of the costs incurred by the families. We will accept monetary donations and purchase gift cards that will be included as part of the major gift. Your contribution will be a small token of our respect and gratitude for those who have contributed so much.
