Women and girls across the East and West Coast will have a unique opportunity to join as one, in honor of Gimmel Tammuz.
Twenty years will be marked with a collaborated twenty locations for mivtzoyim. For those who have been pushing off mivtzoyim, or just “not getting around to it”, here is a way to get back into the swing of things!
From http://20years20lights.wix.com/20lights , signup is available to join with a friend at the various mivtzoyim locations. Neshek materials will be picked up from designated homes and time is convenient , with each one going when suits them best.
Acts of Chessed are also being marked from joint participants across the globe.
Goldie B. who worked on collaborating the website, said that she thought of the idea, after she more recently started going on mivtzoyim. She said that she had been thinking to go on mivtzoyim for a while, but was apprehensive with the who, what, where, and how. Only after her sister gathered the materials and invited her along, she warmed up to it.
Those few occasions spiraled into something bigger and with a few connections, well received phone calls, and technology she was able to pull it together.
Goldie felt that she wanted to give more women and girls the opportunity of recognizing Gimmel Tammuz through mivtzoyim and chesed. She thought of putting out a connection forum, where people would be able to choose a location, and join with others who might want to do mivtzoyim there as well.
With Gimmel Tammuz in less than a week away, this website is a convenient and supportive way to honor the holy day of Gimmel Tammuz.
Sign up today and let’s mark 20 years, filling 20 locations with light!
Through spreading the warmth of kindness and the light of Shabbos, we will bring in the ultimate Shabbos- the Geula Shelaima!
