Out of the Darkness Community Walk
Sunday, October 24 @10:00am-1:00pm
Join our Mental Health Task Force in calling attention to the importance of suicide prevention. As you may know, suicide is the tenth leading cause of death in the United States and it affects every age group and crosses socioeconomic and prejudicial boundaries. Especially during this time of uncertainty and strain, we hope to shed light on this issue.
In keeping with our congregation’s concern for community, Shaaray Tefila member Amy Tenenbaum will be heading a team from Temple Shaaray Tefila for the American Foundation of Suicide Prevention (AFSP) NYC Community Walk, which takes place at Pier 16 at the South Street Seaport on October 24. Registration begins at 10:00am, the walk will take place 11:30am-1:00pm.

There is a request for donations, and please do contribute if you feel moved to do so, but a financial contribution is not a requirement, nor the purpose of this effort. The point is to expand education and spread awareness.
