Beads of Courage
We spent a morning creating bead bracelets for children entering the hospital for treatment for a serious illness.
One of the missions of Casa Maria of Tucson is to feed the hungry. For the past five years Congregation
M'kor Hayim has created bag lunches for distribution to Casa Maria's clients. For more information and to participate

Mussar, a Jewish practice that is at least a thousand
years old, is a simple practice of character refinement. The intention of mussar (roughly translated as “ethics”)
is to help us become a more whole and a more holy human being. M’kor Hayim currently has two mussar groups. Participants speak regularly about the remarkable
impact it has had in their lives. Participants work with such inner traits (middot) as patience,
humility, generosity, and honor. Each trait is explored through Jewish texts and personal sharing of experiences.
For more information about mussar, or interest in being
in a group, please contact Rabbi Helen Cohn at CongregationMkorHayim@gmail.com.
Our knitting group is called "Knitted Together." We meet regularly
to knit and socialize. Let us know you'd like to join us by emailing CongregationMkorHayim@gmail.com. Below is a picture of some knitters at a monthly gathering. Below that is
a picture of some of the 46 hats we knit for the homeless as part of the Salvation Army's Operation Deep Freeze.
