NEWTOWN – Beginning Feb. 20, Rabbi Rock TV will produce a TV series dedicated to the multiple ways the town of Newtown is enacting loving kindness. Rabbi Saul Praver, spiritual leader of Congregation Adath Israel of Newtown and head of Rabbi Rock TV, and his senior production team made up of Bonnie Goldstein and Leslie Silver, are seeking youth volunteers to operate cameras, run the audio mixing board, do light editing and serve as webmaster. The studio sessions will take place at Charter in Newtown on Thursday evenings 6:30-9:30 p.m., approximately once per month.
“It’s a great way to break into television and do something that will bring a lot of healing and comfort to many people in the process,” says Praver.
The series will be non-sectarian and will focus primarily on the positive foundations and projects Newtown’s grieving families, survivors and first responders have established since the Dec. 2012 shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School. It is hoped that the series will help the healing process in Newtown and advance the cause of peace and civility in the world.
“It’s about tikkun olam and ohavat chesed; improving the world and enacting loving kindness,” says Praver.
Volunteers will be trained and need not be experienced in order to be part of the crew. For more information or to volunteer call (203) 426-5188.
