Donations Needed for OVE
TBI partners with the Jewish Federation of Lane County to help provide much needed donations for Opportunity Village (OVE) residents. OVE  provides tiny houses for people transitioning from homelessness.  There is no electricity or heat, so items that provide warmth are especially important. Please bring donations to the barrel in front of the office. Click here for a full list of needs.

Please let everyone at Temple Beth Israel  know that Opportunity Village is ever so thankful for the donations. We are so appreciative of all that your members do for the village. The blankets are especially appreciated as we have many new villagers who came in with little bedding and now that it is getting so cold they will stay warm.
