NASHUVA SOCIAL ACTION - MAY 2015
 


Sunday, May 31, 2015

EXCITING, ONE-TIME, GIANT URBAN ART PROJECT!
 

Join Nashuva at Portraits of Hope!

A few years ago, Nashuva joined Portraits of Hope (POH) to decorate colorful lifeguard towers that were displayed all along the beach.  It was a resounding success.
 
This year again, Nashuva Volunteers are invited to join in a large-scale community engagement project to revitalize and beautify iconic MacArthur park.  The project will enlist 4,000-7,000 volunteers, yet POH has offered Nashuva volunteers a dedicated painting session.

On our painting day, Sunday, May 31st, we are invited to bring our family and friends to POH studio at Rosecrans and Sepulveda in El Segundo. We will be painting giant spheres in vibrant colors.  Hundreds of them be floating on the lake in MacArthur  park.
We are really excited to be part of this one-time urban massive art project.  

See the link below to learn more about this fun project:

NASHUVA SOCIAL ACTION - MARCH 2015

Nashuva - Los Angeles Jewish Home

NASHUVA SOCIAL ACTION - FEBRUARY 2015

Nashuva & TreePeople Celebrate Tu B'shvat
 

On Sunday, February 8, 2015, Nashuva's Social Action joined with TreePeople's local community partner, the Social Justice Learning Institute, on a community-led Greening Plan for the communities of Inglewood and Lennox.
 

Nashuva Social Action - TuB-shvat with TreePeople

"I got down dirty and I dug it!  I very much enjoyed working with others for a good cause especially one that I care about!  I didnít know what to expect.  Rachel, the Director of the Tree People, was very informative and explained things in a way so that we could tend the trees on our own without her assistance.  We all split into groups and picked the tree we wanted to care for.  Once we were done tending to our own trees, many of us went to help others bringing them mulch, water or whatever they needed.  True team spirit.  Look forward to coming back again next year!

Thank you so much for all of your service!!"

NASHUVA SOCIAL ACTION 2015
 

At Nashuva we believe that prayer leads us to action. It reminds us that we are here to heal this broken world.  Nashuva is a service that leads to service.  Join our Social Action team as we serve together to bring light to some dark corner of our city. 

Nashuva Social Action has been running monthly events all around the city for ten years. Our events have ranged from feeding the hungry, the environment, working with homelessness, addiction, the elderly and more.

Nashuva is planning other events not listed here yet.  Check our website and your emails regularly as we post upcoming events. There are many opportunities for volunteer involvement at every level, from conceptualizing an event, to leading, staffing and volunteering in one or many.

You can count on the support of the Nashuva Social Action team for any event you want to introduce in the yearly schedule.

Join us this year! We need volunteers to help at our events.  We need volunteers to lead an event.  We need volunteers to create connections and help us identify events.

Stand up and be counted!  Let us know we can count on you.

Contact Carol and/or Julie and let us know how you can help.
