High Holy Day 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. This year, all food collected will be donated to the Pleasantville Interfaith Food Pantry. 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 pandemic and economy.  The Pleasantville Pantry donates any overflow to other pantries that are in need of donations.
