More than 125 participants joined us for our annual morning of community service on the day after Thanksgiving. After a light breakfast hosted by Temple Emanu-El in Palm Beach, volunteers headed out to their choice of nonprofit venues to lend a hand.

New, unwrapped toys and nonperishable food were also collected and donated to agencies that help those in need.
In addition to the t-shirt, this season's participants also received a refillable water bottle.

The final session of the series scheduled for March 26 was canceled due to the potential impact of the coronavirus.
Our thanks to facilitators Rabbi Howard Shapiro and Thomas G. O'Brien III for the lively discussions of the first two sessions, to Royal Poinciana Chapel for providing the venue, and to Amici Market.for the pizza.
Essay and Creative Arts Competition
The topic for the 2020 competition was inspired by the Edgar Guest poem, "It Couldn't Be Done." Open to all students in Palm Beach County public and private middle and high schools, categories include visual art, photography, music, video, poetry, and essays.
Cash prizes will be awarded to the top entries. Teachers of winning students receive a small check for supplies. Winning entries will be announced in June and featured on this website.
Due to covid-19, the awards ceremony normally held in May was canceled, but winning students and teachers will be acknowledged at a Fellowship event when conditions allow.
