More than 100 volunteers turned out for the eighth annual Fellowship Friday, a morning of community service projects sponsored by the Palm Beach Fellowship of Christians & Jews on Nov. 23.

Participants gathered for breakfast at Temple Emanu-El Palm Beach before heading out to four pre-selected partner locations: Big Dog Ranch Rescue, Adopt-A-Family Program Reach, the Levine Jewish Residential & Family Service, and a beach cleanup at Root Trail.

Volunteers traveled from Wellington, Lake Worth, Palm Beach Gardens and other surrounding communities to help in the effort. Others who were visiting local family for Thanksgiving came from places far away.

Rabbi Michael Resnick, founder of Fellowship Friday and spiritual leader of Temple Emanu-El, welcomed everyone to the breakfast, and Fellowship Vice Chair Maggie Zeidman thanked Temple Emanu-El for hosting the breakfast and thanked the volunteers for giving of their time.

This season’s Fellowship Friday was dedicated to the memory of Denise Meyer, a faithful supporter of Fellowship Friday who passed away in March. Zeidman presented a plaque in memory of his wife to Bill Meyer. Their children Candice and A.J. also participated in the Fellowship Friday event.
