Congregation Sons of Israel and the Irving Place Minyan, located at 111 Irving Place in Woodmere, have scheduled their semiannual blood donation drive for Sunday, December 7, 9:00 a.m.–2:30 p.m., in the synagogue. The need for whole blood and its components within our metropolitan area is critical. The navi tells us that for one who saves a single life, it is as if he has saved the world. Please save lives—and worlds—by donating your blood, which your body will replenish in a short amount of time. For further information, call 516-374-0655.
