The Jewish Federation of Rockland County will hold Super Sunday – a day of fun and fundraising – on January 24, 2016 at the Rockland Jewish Community Campus, 450 West Nyack Road, West Nyack. Hundreds of individuals, community groups and families are expected to attend to volunteer and enjoy special events throughout the day.
Super Sunday is part of Rockland Federation’s annual campaign to raise money for programs that aid those in need and help sustain a vibrant Jewish community in Rockland, Israel and in 60+ countries worldwide. Volunteers are trained to make phone calls to ask for donations, and there are four phone shifts with the first beginning at 9:30 AM and the last shift ending at 3:00 PM. Teens are encouraged to volunteer to earn community service hours. Refreshments will be provided.
Rockland Federation’s PJ Library, a program that delivers free Jewish books and music to local children, will hold a Superhero Super Sunday event at 11:30 AM for kids ages 2+ (with chaperone). Children are invited to come in costume and give back to our “real” superheroes by creating cards for Kosher Troops – U.S. servicemen and women who are Jewish and stationed overseas. Kids will also take photos with U.S. and Israeli soldiers in uniform and celebrate Tu B’Shvat, the Jewish new year of the trees by making tree-themed crafts. Pizza and snacks will be served to all participating children and the event is free with advanced online registration and $3 at the door.
According to Beth Weiss-Dunn, Jewish Federation of Rockland County’s Campaign Associate, “Super Sunday is as much about coming together as a community as it is about fundraising. It’s an impactful way to bring the community together to do good.”
