Social action will be a focus at Temple Emanuel on Friday, as the Sabbath service to celebrate the Jewish Arbor Day will be combined with a presentation on lead paint.
Two student researchers from Augustana College, Rock Island, will share their research on the lead paint threat to children in the Quad-Cities. According to Genesis Health System, 1,600 children from Scott County have been poisoned by lead paint since 2000.
The service is 6:30 p.m. Friday at Temple Emanuel, 1115 Mississippi Ave., Davenport. The service will be followed by a social hour.
