High Holy Days Food Drive

Annual High Holy Days Food Drive Outreach

With a greater number of families and food pantries requiring our help, we ask that you and your family participate as much as you can in this important Mitzvah. Make this a meaningful family Mitzvah by involving your children in selecting the items, purchasing and packing the bag, a reusable bag or box with food, and bringing it to the Temple. If you have reusable bags you are not using, please donate them, as well.

Given the critical need at present, wouldn’t it be wonderful if each of us, even in a small way, would participate? Below is a list of the most needed items. If you prefer to make a monetary contribution toward this effort, please email Rabbi Vaisberg or call 973-994-2290. For any other questions, contact Janet Penn, 973-986-6390, or Ruth Ross, 973-328-1633, Social Action Committee Co-Chairs.
