    AC at the Staten Island Yankees
    Sunday, Jul 28th 11:30a to 4:30p
    Take me out to the ball game! Take me out with the crowd! Buy me some peanuts and Cracker Jack, I don't care if I never get back... Is there a better way there to spend a summer afternoon than a day at the park? The Staten Island Yankees will play the Lowell Spinners (a minor league team of the Boston Red Sox), and we'll root, root, root for the home team! The game begins at 1pm, but we will meet at the Staten Island Ferry terminal (Manhattan side) at 11:30am so that we can all go together. If you will be going on your own, please email druskay@anschechesed.org and we will arrange to have your tickets waiting for you at the will-call window at the park. Come and enjoy a fun day of "New York Pizza Rat" baseball. Kosher food available for purchase at the ballpark!

    Ethical Wills: A Values Vault for Future Generations©
    Monday, Sep 23rd 7:00p to 9:00p

    Ethical wills, sometimes called spiritual or legacy letters, are resources Jews have used for centuries to articulate and pass on deeply held values and beliefs. Historically, they were letters written by parents to children; now they often address a wider circle of friends and family, and can come in audio, video, or other creative formats. No matter the format, they contain a person’s moral legacy, including stories, life lessons, and blessings for the future.

    There are many reasons to make an ethical will: to reflect on how we have lived and how we wish to live; to give and to ask for love; to pass on what we don’t want forgotten; to forgive and to be forgiven; to remember and to be remembered; to leave behind something personal and distinctive for friends and family.

    Join Rabbi Yael as we develop our own personal Ethical Wills during the High Holiday season this year.

    Ethical Wills: A Values Vault for Future Generations© is an initiative of the Marlene Meyerson JCC Manhattan and the Center for Pastoral Education at the Jewish Theological Seminary, and is supported by a generous grant from the Charles H. Revson Foundation.

    Postcard Writing for Syrian Refugees
    Thursday, Dec 5th 7:00p to 8:30p
    Now in its eighth year, the Syrian crisis has left more than 500,000 dead. There are 5.6 million Syrian refugees registered in neighboring countries; and 6.6 million internally displaced people. One of the most brutal aspects of the crisis has been the deliberate targeting of the medical infrastructure — the bombing of hospitals and killing of doctors. The disruption of Syria’s healthcare system has had disastrous impact on the most vulnerable members of the population — women and young children. Come join other Ansche Chesed members as we write postcards which will be delivered along with relief supplies to Syrians at hospitals as well as refugee camps. The Multifaith Alliance for Syrian Refugees (MFA) is the nation’s leading interfaith response to the Syrian refugee crisis. In just two years, MFA has shipped more than $125 million in relief supplies including medicines, hospital equipment, food, clothing, and other supplies to those in desperate need inside Syria and in neighboring refugee camps.
