We love this message for our wonderful PJ kids this season! Take a little time to be the helper. Come join us on December 8 Addlestone Hebrew Academy 's Hanukkah's Fair where we will be making holiday cards for our troops. Come join Charleston Jewish Family Services for the First Responder Project on December 25. Do you have some gently loved PJ Library books that you are no longer enjoying? Please donate them back to the Charleston Jewish Federation so we can give them to local teachers and community organizations! So many small things that little hands can do that make a huge difference!

What if we were more focused on helping others find their light instead of showing off our own? In a world of bright, showy lights that demand attention, be the helper. Be the shamash. You'll have your turn to shine. #wednesdaywisdom
