Upcoming CONECT Events:
Greetings 2018 Voter Registration Volunteers and Friends!
We’re back. Many of you offered to help again if there were opportunities before the next round of local elections in Bridgeport, Fairfield, and surrounding areas.
Last summer, over 60 volunteers registered hundreds of new voters. Barbara created a voter registration kit and training, which she will offer again for new volunteers or as a refresher. If you would like to attend a training at B’nai Israel on Monday, August 26, at 7:00 p.m.; Wednesday, September 11 at 4:30 p.m.; or Sunday, October 6th at 9:30 a.m.— please reply to Barbara Edinberg at email@example.com.
If you are interested in volunteering for one or more of these registration dates, please let us know. We’ll create a calendar— so please share any other dates and locations, particularly near where you live or work. We will partner again with other CONECT congregations in the area.
Possible registration sites and dates are:
B’nai Israel is an active member of CONECT, (Congregations Organized for a New Connecticut) which is an organization of 15,000 people from 25 religious institutions: urban and suburban, multi-faith, and ethnically diverse, living in communities from Norwalk to East Haven. The members of CONECT discover, research, analyze, and articulate a powerful moral voice to negotiate with business and government leaders regarding social, economic, and political issues that affect our member congregations.
