It was such a pleasure to gather books this evening at Beth El, my congregation and a place where I taught religious school for twelve years. Currently, I lead Junior Congregation on Shabbat!
The children and families of Beth El's Early Childhood Center just donated a few hundred wonderful books to BookSmiles, which will soon put them into the hands of appreciative children in the district where I teach!
To all ECC families, we're always collecting children's books. You can deposit them in the wooden bin, just across from Ms. Debbie Beideman's office.
