North Shore religion news in brief

(Continued)

The Lappin Foundation has formed the Youth to Israel Alumni Association, which invites all alumni from 1971 to 2013 who participated in any of the teen trips subsidized by Lappin Foundation and by the Jewish Federation of the North Shore, including Y2I, LGI, USY, NFTY, Young Judaea and others. The first alumni event will take place on Sunday, June 1, at 4 p.m., with a free, special screening of the IMAX film “Jerusalem, The Movie.” Alumni are invited to reconnect, reminisce, and re-visit the magic and beauty of Jerusalem. Seating is limited to 300. Attendees will receive a goodie bag of Israeli treats. Alumni can reserve up to two tickets each by contacting Evan Coltin at 978-740-4410 or ecoltin@lappinfoundation.org.

The Lappin Foundation is planning to quantify the impact of its Youth to Israel Adventure on Jewish identity. The success of the program interests Jewish communities across the country. The foundation needs to contact at least 75 percent of Y2I alumni from 1971 to 2007. Anyone with information should send names and emails of people they know who participated in Y2I, aka LGI, or ask them to send the information by emailing ecoltin@lappinfoundation.org or by calling 978-740-4410. If they know which year they participated, that would also be helpful. The foundation also needs names and emails of alumni of Israel teen trips who received a subsidy from the Federation from 1971 to 1988 for any teen Israel experience, including USY, NEFTY, Young Judaea and others, since they will be included in the study. Contact Evan Coltin at the number and address given above.

On the second Sunday of each month, members and friends of Maple Street Congregational Church collect food and essential items for the Danvers food pantry. Items most needed are baby wipes, disposable diapers in sizes 3 through 6, canned soups, peanut butter, canned tuna and cereal. The church is at 90 Maple St., Danvers. For more information, call 978-774-4510.
