Snow Could Not Stop the Friendship Circle Walk

Temple Emanu-El participates in the Friendship Walk

What’s a little snow when you have a good cause to support? members and friends with the Temple Emanu-El Social Action Committee braved some harsh weather conditions on October 30 to participate in the Friendship Circle Walk, held at the  in Livingston.

In spite of the rapidly melting snow and downed tree limbs from the unusual October snowstorm the day before, volunteers joined in either the one-mile or the 5K walk/run in a proud demonstration of community awareness, festivity and unity.

The Friendship Circle, who sponsored the event, aims to provide children and teenagers with special needs with many of the social, recreational and Judaic experiences that are currently available to the general community and to provide their families with respite and support. These experiences are essential building blocks for an individual to acquire confidence and self-esteem and to ultimately lead a productive, normative lifestyle.

The Friendship Walk featured, in addition the walk/run, entertainment including a petting zoo and free food. The festive atmosphere added to the fun of supporting a worthwhile cause.

For additional information, please call the Temple office at 973-992-5560 or to become part of the Temple Emanu-El team contact Deb Spencer at SocialAction@emanuel.org. Temple Emanu-El is located at 264 West Northfield Road in Livingston.
