Social Action

Habitat for Humanity

On Sunday, September 8 CBI partnered with Temple Emanuel, Andover to plant trees, shrubs and perennials at the recently completed two-family Habitat for Humanity home in Lawrence. We planted 10 shrubs, 2 flowering cherry trees donated by Rogers Spring Hill Garden Center in Haverhill, and several dozen perennials. The weather was perfect and we had lots of help from the two wonderful families who now call Franklin Street home. The landscaping transformed a bare lot to a promising garden!

Special thanks to Rabbi Mandell for his support and encouragement, and for a generous donation from the Rabbi’s Discretionary Fund to help defray the cost of plantings.

Please stay tuned for news of more fall opportunities to join the Social Action Committee.

Thank you for joining us in Tikkum Olam!
