The Kehillat Ma’arav Social Action Committee is pleased to announce that we have partnered with The American Red Cross to host a blood drive on Sunday, January 30, 2022. As the largest project in our evolving plans for a synagogue-wide Mitzvah Day, our Blood Drive will be a meaningful and life-saving day for so many.

Our blood drive is currently full, but we are building a day-of wait list for appointments that may open due to cancellations or ineligibility. If you would like to be on our wait list, please contact Kate Flanagan at

There are other opportunities to participate, even if you cannot donate blood:

We’ll sponsor a Donation Drive that will collect three major items for three local non-profits: 

1.     Westside Food Bank—desperately needs dry cereal
2.     Baby 2 Baby—always needs diapers of all sizes
3.     Best Friends Animal Society LA – dry food for cats and dogs
4.     National Council of Jewish Women— books
 All items should be brought to the front of KM that day, January 30th, from 10am – 4pm.
We will also have tables available for families/kids to create Valentine’s for the Jewish Home for the Aging (setup in the KM parking lot).
