Mitzvah Day activities will actually begin Nov. 19 with a "Caravan for Katrina" at Temple Sholom in Riveredge at 7:30 pm. The drive for non-perishable food, books, clothing, new toys and games has been organized and is being co-sponsored by Young Judea, the youth movement of Hadassah. All local teens are urged to bring their donations to pack up that evening and load onto two ‘4-foot trucks that will transport the items to relief centers in the Gulf Coast, stopping at other Young Judea-sponsored collection points along the route. A Social Action Dance at the synagogue, located at 385 Howland Avenue in River Edge, will follow the packing project. For information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
