The High Holy Day Food Drive is a long-standing holiday tradition at Temple Beth El, when our congregants honor our day of fasting by making a monetary contribution for hunger relief. Our TBE community understands that having adequate food has a huge impact on one’s health and well-being. This is especially true for children who are developing physically, cognitively, and socially. If you haven’t done so already, you can contribute to the High Holy Day Food Drive until October 12. You can donate online under the “Giving” tab, or mail a check to Temple with “High Holy Day Food Drive” in the memo.

In addition to the High Holy Food Drive, the TBE Social Action Committee works on hunger relief all year. In October and November, our Religious School students and parents donate hundreds of food items to the Goodman Community Center Thanksgiving Basket Collection. Our volunteers also serve free community meals at Catholic Multicultural Center once a month, and cook meals four times a year for Healing House, a respite center where homeless families can safely recuperate from illness, surgery, or childbirth. We also volunteer for the Thoreau School Food Program, packing and delivering food for the families of elementary school children. If you’d like to volunteer with one of our hunger relief projects, please contact Aleeza Hoffert to get involved.
