Space OdysseyOut of this World!  Space Odyssey a Great Success!


On Aug. 26th Areyvut hosted our summer fundraising event at Space Odyssey in Englewood, NJ.  Children and parents had a great time riding the Alien Train, playing arcade games, laser tag, glow-in-the-dark bowling and more!  Congratulations to our raffle winners!  View more pictures in our photo gallery!
A special thank you to Elvira Grau and Kathiya Zelasco for graciously allowing us to host our event at Space Odyssey and to the Space Odyssey staff for their help and support throughout the day!

Thank you to our corporate sponsors:

Counting Down the Days…Going Green 
For the past five years Areyvut has developed an “A Kindness a Day” Calendar, featuring 365 suggested kindnesses that you can do to make the world a better place.  In an effort to go green, the 2010 calendar will not be printed, but rather will be distributed via Twitter as well as a daily email.
We invite you to infuse your life with chesed (kindness), tzedakah (charity) and tikkun olam (social justice) by following us on Twitter and/or signing up for our daily email.



Thanks to Our Amazing Interns! 

This summer the Areyvut staff was truly fortunate to have the opportunity to work with such incredible interns.  These high school and college students enhanced, facilitated and created programs from scratch.  Additionally, they provided us much fun and great memories.  We thank them for their hard work, dedication and commitment to Areyvut.
