Bucks County Becomes Second Super Sunday Site

0

You don't have to go too far to participate in the Greater Philadelphia Jewish community’s largest day of fundraising and community-building, Super Sunday, on Feb. 21.

This year, residents of Bucks County won’t have to travel far to participate in the Greater Philadelphia Jewish community’s largest single day of fundraising and community-building, Super Sunday, on Sunday, Feb. 21*. In addition to the event’s main location at Jack M. Barrack Hebrew Academy in Bryn Mawr, the Jewish Federation of Greater Philadelphia will host a “mini” Super Sunday from 9:00 a.m. to noon at Shir Ami, at 101 Richboro Newtown Road in Newtown. This marks the first time since 2007 that Super Sunday will have multiple locations.
 
Debbie Rosenberg and Alan Sheinberg are chairs of the Bucks County Jewish Coalition, which works in partnership with, and is funded through, the Neighborhoods Initiative of the Jewish Federation. “I am really excited that the Bucks County Jewish Coalition is having Super Sunday out here in conjunction with the one in Bryn Mawr,” says Rosenberg. She adds: “I am happy we are able to support the Jewish Federation on a large scale in the community in which we all live.”
 
“Ever since we stopped having a Super Sunday in Bucks County, which we had for many years, I’ve been troubled by the fact that people in our community didn’t feel they could get involved due to distance,” says Sheinberg. “I am very happy that we can once again host at a local venue for residents who want to take part in this great event. We have a thriving Jewish community in Bucks County and many people would like to get involved, so we are making it possible for them to do so.”
 
Help make the calls that make a difference by registering for Super Sunday at one of the two locations. To sign up, visit jewishphilly.org/ssregister.
