Double Your Donation. Double Your Impact


When you enter our synagogue atrium, you are met by our COSY wall. It chronicles years of recognition that our young people and USY group, COSY, have received. Daphne Hubara has been the inspiration to our student and youth programs. Whether "4th Friday," The Kesher visit to the Holocaust Museum, the southern civil rights tour or convention participation, our young people have formed friendships and connections to Judaism that will last a lifetime.


As we announced in the July Scroll, Mindy Seltzer and Bob Lovinger have generously established a new fund, the NortonSeltzer-Sophie Lovinger Student Activities Fund. This fund will help insure that our successful youth and student activities continue and grow across all age groups.


Breaking news! An anonymous donor was so impressed by the goals of this fund that they have volunteered to match the first $3,000 that congregants donate to this new fund.


Double your donation. Double the impact. Remember or honor someone today by donating to the Norton Seltzer-Sophie Lovinger Activities Fund.

Happening Around Town

Emanu-el is working with the rest of the Jewish community to donate specific toys to the Children's hospital here in Charleston. Please read the information below from our member, Laura Zucker. 


אומר מעט, ועושה הרבה 


I am on a summer mission and with the help of my community, I think it can be successful. I am asking for donations for certain items for the child life team at MUSC. There are always many needs at the hospital and with the new hospital coming, I know that there will be more bigger toy asks coming, but this is for the present time. Whatever you can donate is so greatly appreciated, for "we have not lived today until we have done something for someone who can never repay you."


Here are the items:


1) Stuffed animals - MUST be new, with tags and from the store, have no strings or ribbons, and eyes must be securely on the face; please not the big ones as they must fit in a cabinet.

2) UNO cards - the most popular game at the hospital and unfortunately they cannot be reused due to infection control so they run out of those fast.

3) Mobiles - baby mobiles, no fabric as those are hard to clean; must be new.

4) Operation and Connect 4 - who doesn't love to play these games! But very often pieces go missing so back-ups are always good to have.

5) Lego kits - we use these for kids that are here for infusions, chemo, dialysis, etc. and are not mobile; these are the small kits, not the big ones or even medium ones.

6) Slime kits - I bet you thought the slime craze was over...wrong! There are actual slime kits that have everything you need in one box.

7) Stress balls - I could use a stress ball in my hands at all the times but that's just me. Stress balls can be squishy, slimy, glittery, water bead-y, and any other adverb you want to use.

8 ) Fubbles - who doesn't love bubbles?! Ok, let me rephrase...who loves bubbles but doesn't like that they spill everywhere and everything gets all sticky? So Fubbles are bubbles that don't spill and perfect for kids!

9) Look and Find Books - it's the "Where's Waldo?" for little kids and great use for when kids need something else to focus on other than being in the hospital.


I will stress this again...everything must be out of the store, new. Anything that we think might not be new will have to be thrown away. Words can't express my gratitude for your generosity. I will be setting up a drop bin inside emanu-el.  You can also bring when you come for Kabbalat Shabbat services, however please do not bring on Shabbat. 


Thank you.
