The Jewish Federation of Rockland County will hold Super Sunday – a day of fun and fundraising – on February 8, 2015 at the Rockland Jewish Community Campus, 450 West Nyack Road, West Nyack. Hundreds of individuals, community groups and families are expected to attend to volunteer and enjoy special events throughout the day.
Super Sunday is part of Rockland Federation’s annual campaign to raise money for programs that aid those in need and help sustain a vibrant Jewish community in Rockland, Israel and in 60+ countries worldwide. Volunteers are trained to make phone calls to ask for donations, and there are four phone shifts with the first beginning at 9AM and the last shift ending at 3PM. Teens are encouraged to volunteer to earn community service hours. Refreshments will be provided.
Rockland Federation’s PJ Library, a program that delivers free Jewish books and music to local children, will hold a Super Sunday event from 1:00-2:30PM for kids ages 2+ (with chaperone). Children will meet Superman and are invited to come dressed as their favorite superhero. They will also celebrate Tu B’Shvat, the Jewish new year of the trees, make a tree-themed project and enjoy pizza and snacks. The PJ Library event is free for families who register in advance at www.jewishrockland.org/supersunday and $5 at the door.
According to Holly Mauskopf, Jewish Federation of Rockland County’s Campaign Director, “Super Sunday is as much about coming together as a community as it is about fundraising. It’s an impactful way to bring the community together to do good.”
The public is invited to learn more about Super Sunday and to sign up online at www.jewishrockland.org/supersunday. Businesses and organizations wishing to sponsor are asked to call Holly Mauskopf at 845-362-4200, ext. 121; sponsorships are available for as little as $72.
