November 11, Project Chicken Soup Awards honoring Co-founder, Mollie Pier
One of BCC’s missions is to support social action through its programming–Tikkun Olam (repair of the world). About 25 years ago, our congregation founded the Nechama (comfort) program, the forerunner of today’s Project Chicken Soup, to provide cheer and vital fresh cooked Kosher nutrition to people living with HIV. Since that time we have supported PCS and many BCC members are involved.
PCS is announcing an exciting event to honor PCS co-founder and still active long-time volunteer Mollie Pier, who is still going strong at 92 years young! This brunch will feature a varied Kosher menu prepared by celebrated master Jewish chefs. BCC & PCS cordially invites you to put this unique event on your calendar and to attend.
