Coming Events

Mitzvah Mall

Congregation Beth Sholom is once again sponsoring MITZVAH MALL on Sunday December 4. It is a holiday gift from Congregation Beth Sholom to the Anchorage community. Think about a non-denominational bizarre bazaar that is an alternative gift fair. In a room filled with decorative and informative tables, there will be 20 non-profit organizations with representatives to share their stories of the assistance they give to those in need.  The non-profits range from those supporting the arts to animal welfare agencies, from health and food assistance to safe places for troubled youth, several international aid groups, and many more. Although most of the organizational representatives are human, we will have birds (Sandy the sandhill crane and two owls) and a therapy dog to help shoppers learn about two of the organizations.
What could be better than the gift of helping those agencies who help others?  And isn’t that better than another candle or pot holder? It is a fun event. Performers play acoustical music during the event.
“Gifts” are in various price ranges beginning at $5. Donors can receive a lovely card, filled out by a calligrapher, to send to the person honored by the gift.
DATE: Sunday December 4
TIME: 12- 3 PM
LOCATION: 7525 East Northern Lights Blvd. Next to Carrs Muldoon
