The ways to give just got super easy

Sunday, November 17, 9:30 am–1 pm, Reba and Sam Sandler Family Campus

Super Sunday, Nov. 17

  • 9:30 am—Training
  • 10 am–1 pm—Phone-a-thon
  • 10–11:30 am—Shift 1
  • 11:30 am–1 pm—Shift 2

Super Sunday, as always, is being planned by a group of emerging, visionary leaders. In addition to the Rishon committee, more than 100 volunteers have signed up to make calls for the annual community phone-a-thon event that debuted in 1980.

To make it easier to make a gift, this year, Super Sunday 2020 is implementing an online giving platform, so that people who want to support the United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s mission can bypass the call and make a gift online or text at their convenience.

Rishon Committee

  • Amie Harrell, Committee Chair
  • Robyn Weiner, Committee Vice-Chair
  • Igor Vaserfirer
  • Dara Pomerantz
  • Hillary Gordon
  • Demian Gordon
  • Tal Feldman-Sifen
  • Ro’ee Mor
  • Eitan Altshuler

Those who prefer the personal experience and answer the phone call, might be delighted by the voice of a seventh grade Sunday School volunteer. Engaging Religious School students at Super Sunday gives the children an experience of interacting with the community for the benefit of agencies such as Jewish Family Service and Strelitz International Academy, among many others. The purpose behind ‘Super Sunday School’ is to foster hands-on philanthropy in students while providing an opportunity for their teachers to volunteer without missing class.

Be part of Jewish Tidewater’s 2020 Vision and volunteer, take the call, go online and make a gift, or stop by the Sandler Family Campus to “help see it all through.”
