It's time for the annual Medical Debt Relief Project, an interfaith effort to help those with high medical bills they cannot afford to pay. Last year we “bought back” over $1 million in medical bills from our community. The hospital was able to “write off” these bills, and the people had one less bill to pay. You can contribute to this effort by sending a check to B’nai Shalom Havurah and mailing it to me at 810 Dillon Lane, Taos, NM 87571
I will send you an acknowledgement for your tax purposes (B’nai Shalom is a 501 ©(3) nonprofit corporation)
For B’nai Shalom Havurah
Anytime is TIME for gifts of food and Tzedakah.

Shamash Award to TJC From the Jewish Federation of New Mexico's award letter: Mazel Tov! We are extremely proud of all of your hard work and dedication on behalf of our Jewish community. The energy, commitment and tenacity of TJC continue to add so much to the life and vitality of JFNM and our greater, regional Jewish community.
On learning of the award, TJC board member Bruce Ross remarked,"Wonderful ...It seems like we’re the first to be lit and now we need to continue to light others."
The Taos Jewish Center is...
dedicated to fostering a positive Jewish identity by providing programs and services that enrich the lives of the people it serves in Northern New Mexico.
The TJC is open to all who wish to participate in experiences that reflect and incorporate Jewish ethics, culture, and observances.
The Taos Jewish Center is not only "open to," but encourages diverse forms of Jewish practice, and we have no single affiliation -- we are not orthodox, nor reform, nor reconstructionist, nor conservative; we are all of those things, and SO MUCH MORE.
Come join us and embrace the diversity and multiplicity of Judaism as practiced by those in our community.
