On behalf of everyone at The Together Plan we’d like to wish all of our supporters celebrating Rosh Hashanah this week a Shana Tova u’metuka – a very happy and sweet new year.
This festive season is a particularly significant milestone for The Together Plan, as we look back on our first half-decade ahead of our fifth birthday on 10th October. We’ve achieved a remarkable amount in this short time, due entirely to the generosity of people like you: those who have given their money or time; donated unwanted clothes to our humanitarian aid project or volunteered for us; come along to an event or simply read our newsletter each week. We couldn’t have done it without you.
At this time of year, we are encouraged to reflect on our actions over the year past, and on the person that we would like to be in the year ahead. As communities across Belarus prepare to enter a new year, with all the achievements and challenges that entails, we ask you to help them realise their ambitions for 5779. There’s so much to do: the Minsk Ghetto Survivors’ Association will launch their first ever English-language book in late October; the enormous task of restoring the Great Synagogue of Slonim will get underway; the final touches will be put to a comprehensive, multi-denominational online liturgy and music resource; and communities across Belarus will continue to provide a much-needed cultural and spiritual home for their members.
For this reason, we’ve launched a High Holy Day appeal, which will run until the end of December. Donations of any size will be greatly appreciated and will make a huge difference to our communities in Belarus.
This Rosh Hashanah, will you help us make our vision for 5779 a reality?
