In the spirit of Shabbat Across Winnipeg, Congregation Shaarey Zedek reached out to surprise all members who have been with the shul for 50 or more years and gifted them two challot to enjoy with their Shabbat meal. Members were given the option to have their challot delivered, pick them up from the campus, or wait to receive their gift in April after returning from winter escape. Shaarey Zedek has just over 100 households that have been members for 50 or more years, with one person being a member for almost 70 years. There are many member acknowledgement initiatives like this ahead. In addition, Dr. Rena Secter Elbaze, Shaarey Zedek’s Engagement and Education Director, and volunteers will be at the Asper Campus across from Schmoozer’s Café most Thursdays where they will meet and greet SZ members and others who work, work out, and gather at the campus.
