Yom Kippur – Joyful Thanks

Yom Kippur is the holiest day in the Jewish Calendar. We thought it would be fitting to give special thanks to all our donors, supporters, volunteers, staff, and friends that observe this special day.

Every year we receive thousands of backpacks and school supplies that are sorted and filled by congregations throughout Southern California.  Many temples, day schools and social action committees organize fundraising events for School on Wheels and the homeless children that we serve or offer their time and talents as volunteers for School on Wheels.

This day is the most solemn of the year for Jewish people; yet there is an undertone of joy that suffuses it, a joy that revels in the spirituality of the day. We are so thankful and filled with joy that we can consider the following among our wonderful donors and friends:

Temple Judea
Heschel Day School
Congregation Shir Amir
The Haupt Group
Kehillat Israel Early Childhood Center
Temple Isaiah Preschool
Congregation Tikvat Jacob
