Hi there! I hope you are all well.
We are always trying to think of the next creative program. What if your next innovative program would help raise money for the shul and also do some good? Well here it is. It’s wild – but it’s fabulous. Seth Berman, the President of Ahavas Achim in Highland Park / Edison (http://www.ahavasachim.org/) has started a campaign to lose weight 1 dollar at a time. Congregants could pledge 1 dollar or 5 dollars for every pound lost by the jovial president. By the way, I’ve also attached a couple of documents from their campaign.
Let me know if you decide to use a program like this. I wonder how much money they’re going to raise.
