Thank you all! Your generosity raised over $3000 to buy teddy bears for the Teddy Bear Lift Project.
Research has shown that cuddly stuffed animals provide solace to children coping with loss. The Tzedek Council of Temple Emanuel in partnership with Interfaith Welcome: Bay Area Refugee Support has been receiving donations to buy teddy bears for refugee children impacted by the humanitarian crisis in Syria.
Thank you again,
