High Holy Days Food Drive 5781

ANNUAL HIGH HOLY DAYS FOOD DRIVE

“When you are asked in the world to come, ‘What was your work?’ and you answer: ‘I fed the hungry,’ you will be told: ‘This is the gate of the Lord, enter into it, you who have fed the hungry’”  (Midrash to Psalm 118:17).

Each year during the High Holy Days, our congregation generously donates food to a Westchester-based organization, serving individuals in need. Food collected this year will be donated to the Interfaith Food Pantry of Pleasantville. The Pantry serves individuals from local communities who are the truly needy: elderly singles who can’t pay Westchester rents; disabled men and women with little disability insurance with families to feed; mentally impaired individuals; mothers and children fleeing from abusive situations; families in which parents were temporarily laid off who have now used up what little savings they had. And this year the needs are greater than ever with so many individuals and families affected by the current economic downturn.

Please note that donations will not be collected at the temple.  We have two ways for families to donate this year instead. 
Please select the option that works best for you and your family.
