Interfaith walk for water

Interfaith walk for water

Congregation B’nai Israel in Emerson’s social action committee is co-sponsoring the “Walk for Water” on Sunday, October 18, at 1:30 p.m., with the Westwood Area Clergy Council. The walk begins at Westvale Park at Harrington Avenue and Sand Road in Westwood and goes to Pascack Brook Park on Emerson Road in Westwood. There, walkers will gather water and carry it back to Westvale Park, appreciating the work of Rwandan women, who carry loads of water every day. Participants should bring 2-liter bottles or gallon jugs. They also can bring something in which they can carry the filled containers; if they cannot, the council will provide them with a carrier.

The Westwood Clergy Council is partnering with “Charity: Water” to make a difference with clean water. To make a donation, go to or write a check to your synagogue.
