The Coastal Star: “Meet Your Neighbor: Ellie Hart”

“So, I went to Alpert Jewish Family Services offering my services two days a week. I learned the organization’s programs, became an AmeriCorps volunteer, and did outreach to veterans. Through someone I met at a lecture, I had the opportunity to accompany a female veteran on an Honor Flight to Washington. Very thrilling.

Martin Luther King Jr’s Birthday

The offices of Alpert Jewish Family Service are closed on Dr. Martin Luther King Jr’s Birthday. There are numerous connections between the work of Dr. King and the Jews living in America at the time which include the following: ·         Dr. King repeatedly used the Jewish experience as a model of success over oppression. ·         A Jewish woman, Esther Brown, in Topeka, Kan., started the lawsuit Brown vs. Board of Education.
