A New Year of Connections with CASA
Join TBE's CASA (Community of Adult Social Action) as we make connections and build community through our small-group social justice activities. Working together is a great way to connect -- even more so as we do projects that express our Jewish values. Please join us for the first time – or join us again!
Share Volunteer Warmth with CASA! Shake out the winter doldrums and join one of CASA’s friendly small-group, hands-on social justice projects:
Prison Book Program (Quincy)
Saturday, March 17, 10:30am to 1:00 pm
The Prison Book Program sends books to prisoners to support their educational, vocational, and personal development. Education behind bars has been shown to reduce recidivism, and the books we share can also offer connection, open doors, and change a life. Our CASA volunteers will read prisoner book requests, search the inventory room for books to match the requests, and process, invoice, and wrap book packages. Up to 10 volunteers needed.
RSVP or learn more: Ilene Pincus, [email protected].

Quote from a CASA Participant:
"The CASA event at Rosie's Place was an amazing experience. As volunteers our TBE community came together with the unified goal of stepping beyond our own busy lives to try to make a difference in the lives of others. We worked hard, but I found the experience to be exceptionally meaningful. We worked well as a team and our efforts were appreciated by Rosie's guests and their dedicated staff. Tikkun olam was the spirit of the day and this particular Shabbat experience will remain with me for a very long time. It was also a wonderful opportunity to meet and connect with some other TBE members that I had not really known before. We shared the day and each others stories. Our CASA program is something you should all experience. If you are anything like me, these experiences will make you feel good about your role and enhance your pride in being part of our TBE family."
