School Supplies Drive for Community of Hope
Jul 1 – Jul 30 all-day

COVID-19 has exacerbated economic challenges already faced by families experiencing homelessness. As schools prepare to reopen this fall, we want to help students served by our close partner organization, Community of Hope. Join us to provide school supplies for students at Community of Hope!

We’re recruiting volunteers to create zipper pouches/school boxes filled with the essential items students need to be successful! Gather the materials, put the school boxes together at home, and then simply drop them off at the EDCJCC by Friday, July 30th and we will donate them.

Visit the registration page for more details.

**This opportunity is ongoing through Friday, July 30th**

EDCJCC Urban Gardening at LAYC
Jul 28 @ 6:00 pm – 7:00 pm


WHAT: Join the Edlavitch DCJCC for an exciting new partnership with the Latin American Youth Center (LAYC) and Urban Beet to bring fresh herbs and vegetables to youth at the LAYC Drop-in Center throughout the summer. Urban Beet has put in a brand-new urban garden at the LAYC Drop-in Center and we need volunteers to help maintain it on a weekly basis.

You don’t have to have any gardening experience – just the desire to get your hands in the dirt and help grow some plants! Come down at the end of a long day to relax, unwind, and get closer to Mother Nature. Children of all ages are welcome but must be supervised closely by an adult.

WHEN: We are looking for volunteers on a weekly basis so you can sign up to volunteer once or as many times in a month/over the summer as you would like. We plan to volunteer through the month of October.

Volunteer days will occur every Wednesday from 6:00 – 7:00 PM starting with Wednesday, May 5. After you register, you will receive a google spreadsheet to choose which Wednesdays throughout the month/over the summer you would like to come garden with us.

WHERE: The LAYC Drop-in Center is located in Columbia Heights. The exact address will be provided upon registration.

Lox Meets Bagel Speed Dating for Tu B’Av
Jul 28 @ 7:00 pm – 9:00 pm

It’s almost time to celebrate the Jewish holiday of love Tu B’Av! Find your other half (of a bagel), or your B’shert at the largest Jewish speed dating event in the DC area, the 11th annual Lox Meets Bagel!

Join NOVA Tribe, EntryPointDC and nearly 100 Jewish young professionals, for 20’s and 30’s speed dating with a twist. You will be individually matched for mini one-on- one dates and mingle with everyone in the room during our Chance At Romance Search. Register with a friend of the opposite sex and get an extra drink ticket.

This event always sells out in advance!!  Make sure to reserve your space as we only have a certain number of male and female spots in order to keep numbers even. 

This event will take place outdoors at The Lot, a spacious venue in Arlington a few blocks from the Clarendon metro stop.

Welcoming Jewish Children
Jul 28 @ 8:00 pm – 9:00 pm

How do I welcome my baby into the Jewish community? What’s a mohel and how do I find one? How are the welcoming rituals similar and different for boys and girls? When and how do I announce the baby’s name?  Join EDCJCC Children and Families staff Lindsay Kagin and Miriam Szubin — who have welcomed two girl and three boy babies between them — for a virtual workshop on Jewish rituals, traditions, and options for a bris (a Jewish religious male circumcision ceremony) and simchat bat (celebration of a daughter). You’ll walk away with information, resources, and connections to a community of other parents-to-be of Jewish babies.
