Habitat for Humanity build a chance to serve

(L-R) Bettina Shore, Bruce Shore, Rabbi Thomas Louchheim, Esther Blumenthal, Helene Sbar, and Gary Becker work on a Habitat for Humanity build, Dec. 1, 2016.

The social action committee of Congregation Or Chadash has arranged a morning of community service on Thursday, Nov. 30, 8 a.m.-noon with Habitat for Humanity Tucson, in collaboration with invited Tucson synagogues and Jewish organizations including Congregations Bet Shalom, M’kor Hayim, Chaverim, Anshei Israel, and Temple Emanu-El plus the Jewish Community Relations Council of the Jewish Federation of Southern Arizona. Participants will help build a house at 6909 S. Radec Lane (south of Valencia Road, west of Sixth Avenue).

“We will work alongside the prospective homeowners to ensure that safe, decent, and affordable housing becomes a reality in our community,” says Bruce Shore, one of the organizers, who notes that this collaboration with Habitat has been conducted in the spring and autumn for several years. “This is an opportunity for the greater Jewish community to show that it can make an impact on housing in Tucson.”

All are welcome, regardless of skill level or mobility.
