Temple Emanu-El Social Action Committee participated in a the Friendship Walk on Nov. 13, an event that was sponsored by the Friendship Circle for the purpose of providing opportunities for social, recreational and Judaic experiences to children and teens with special needs that are currently available to the general community, and to provide their families with respite and support. These experiences are essential building blocks for an individual to acquire confidence and self esteem and to ultimately lead a productive, normative lifestyle..

Originally scheduled for Oct. 30, the day following the freak snowstorm, the 2000 donors and 1500 walkers were able to raise $160,000, walking for either one mile or the 5k
