updates and ideas

it's been awhile, so i figured we should recap and update some happenings.

*we're still up for a trip to clean up the jewish cemetery on the south side. i am working to see if we can get some of our friends from surrounding communities to team up with us. it might only be able to be for a couple of weeks, but, even so, that could be really wonderful. any effort we put in means that much more has been done towards kavod ha'met. and also, this is likely the type of thing that, once the ball gets rolling, it may continue to roll much more easily.

*our first pairing up with an elderly person in hyde park is getting going. if more people are interested in this, i bet we can find some more people for them to spend time visiting, so just be in touch if that's something you would want to do.

*would people be interested in another clothing drive at the end of the quarter for when people are packing up to go home or to move? if so, that would be supremely easy to pull together. it can also be very short--we can do it for just finals week or something and then drive the stuff up to the ark or wherever else the donaters want to give to. so, again, if so, just be in touch about that.

what else? what other ideas of good stuff do people have for the next 8 weeks?
