If you’re looking for an alternative to the crass consumption of the holidays join us for The Mitzvah Mall at Congregation Beth Sholom on Sunday, Dec. 4th.
Think about a non-denominational bizarre bazaar: an alternative gift fair. In a room filled with decorative and informative tables, there are 25-30 nonprofit groups and their representatives to share their stories of the assistance they give to those in need. The nonprofits range from those supporting the arts to animal welfare agencies, from health and food assistance to safe places for troubled youth. 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?
Shoppers can donate to local or international non-profits on behalf of friends, family or others on their holiday gift list. “Gifts” are in various price ranges beginning at $5. Shoppers receive decorative gift cards to present to the person in whose honor the gift was purchased.
