Please mark your calendar for these great upcoming events with your fellow TRIO members! We have so much fun at all of these events, and everyone within our group is great and so welcoming. Please, come join us!
Organ Donor Sabbath: Friday, April 20th at 7:30pm
Temple Israel: 133 Merriman Road Akron, Ohio 44303 Phone: 330-762-8617 Rabbi Robert Feinberg. Sponsored by the Bernard Wise Family to honor organ donors and recipients and is in memory of Bernie Wise.
After services they have what is called an “Oneg Shabbat”. Refreshments are served at that time. This gives people a chance to talk one on one and become more informed on transplantation and the need for donors. We hope many more TRIO members, families and friends will attend this third annual Organ Donor Sabbath. Please mark your calendars now and plan to attend this important event.
