Midbar Kodesh Temple Members Helping our Community
Midbar Kodesh Temple is built upon the spirit of tikkun olam and in these times of need for our community, our members have stepped up in some remarkable ways.
MKT members Jeri Weiss and Emily Miller, both students at Adelson Educational Campus (AEC), have been making the world a better place through the printing of 3-D medical devices for local hospitals. Upper School students at AEC are working from home to make medical supplies that can help remedy the shortages as COVID-19 cases escalate in Southern Nevada.
Jeri Weiss recently celebrated her Bat Mitzvah at Midbar Kodesh Temple, and her family are active members of the congregation. Dr. Avi Weiss, Jeri's father and Urology specialist in Las Vegas, is helping facilitate communications between students and hospital officials to confirm need and quality standards. “We are so proud of our students. They are taking skills learned, talent, and care for the community and applying it to a noble cause."
Emily Miller, daughter of long-time Midbar Kodesh Temple members, Dr. Stephen Miller and Dr. Angela Miller, says that "watching the news, we noticed healthcare workers have an immediate need. Our school's values and mission encourage us to give back to the community and make the world a better place. We just want to help."
