It’s the little things that make a difference. One of my favorite movies is “Evan Almighty.” Steve Carell and Morgan Freeman are in this comedy, and I do recommend it. One of the light hearted messages in the movie is the ARK. Acts of Random Kindness. Again, it’s the little things. At High Holy Days, I often think about this. How can I be a better person? The answer I come up with is often grandiose or just complicated. The truth is, it just takes an ARK to be a better person.

Do you need help? We do! We need Oneg-Kiddush Sponsors. Get on the calendar now by contacting our Oneg Coordinator, whose contact information is under Giving > Sponsor Oneg (click on the link for How to Host an Oneg Shabbat or Kiddush). This ARK is a great way to help celebrate life cycle events or accomplishments with our community.

Even attending services and social events, helping out on committees, or broadening yourself in one of our many adult education classes count as “little things.” Think about this coming High Holy Days. When you are asked about what you did differently this year from last year, will you have some ARKs you accomplished?
