As Giving Tuesday arrives, consider giving some of your Tzdekah allotment to a special Jewish non-profit that opens doors, welcomes strangers, and shares Shabbat with unique joyfulness.
You have the opportunity to support and sustain Panim Hadashot-New Faces in one of two ways.
The first way is by a monthly subscription. Consider setting aside $15 a month or more, the cost of a light dinner out, to enable Panim Hadashot to beautify and open up Shabbat in homes all around Seattle. By subscribing you sustain our capacity to bring this unique gift to the Jewish community, to rediscover the mitzvah of Shabbat hospitality. Below is a picture from one of our monthly Community Shabbat Gatherings with musicians from our Heart of Shabbat Ensemble in the background in front of a crowd of happy people enjoying the Shabbat.

The second way is to give a single gift as an expression of support for the new energy that Panim Hadashot-New Faces brings to Jewish community and beyond. Last month our ensemble led a sing-along of songs from the American and Jewish song book for NAMI (the National Alliance on Mental Illness) Eastside. Sharing the tradition of Shabbat table singing brought comfort and joy to people living in the shadow of mental illness. We shared a spiritual resource that is available for finding joy and meaning in our lives.
Your donation helps us to illumine and renew people's lives, to expose them to a great spiritual resource that flows out of our tradition. Help us to share the healing and restorative quality of Shabbat with Jews and the wider community. Click on the picture below to be taken to the donate page at our website.
Thank you in advance for dedicating a portion of your giving resources to Panim Hadashot-New Faces.
