Help us connect with every member household
Join the ConnectRS team and help us do a mitzvah!  We're looking for congregants to give us an hour or two of time (or as long as you can), to bring your cell phone and make phone calls to current RS members. We call every member household to wish them a Happy Passover on behalf of RS and check in. No soliciting - no big commitment - just friends, fun and food (lunch will be provided).  Many ConnectRS have come back each year to help us make calls because it feels good to connect with other members and do this important outreach work on behalf of RS.
Co-chaired by Linda Karp Rudow & Cheryl Dougherty. With special thanks to Mary Ellen Schneider for all her help.
