Midnight Run

6:00 PM

Free, Registration Required
One East 65th Street

Emanu-El teens in grades nine through 12 are invited to participate in our ninth annual Midnight Run, a volunteer program dedicated to gaining perspective on homelessness. The evening begins with our congregational service for Shabbat Kodesh, followed by a Family Dinner for Religious School families and teens. Then, teens will prepare meals and sort clothing donations before distributing them directly to those in need. Students will earn six community service hours. Donations of dark colored warm coats, pants, sweaters, sweatshirts, hats, gloves, shoes, backpacks and new socks and underwear can be dropped off at either temple entrance. NOTE: This activity is completely safe and accredited. Teens from schools, youth groups, churches and synagogues perform this activity every weekend.
