Our temple has a long tradition of gathering food donations during the High Holy Days. Our cash donations last fall for High Holy Days raised $2,000 which translates into 8,000 meals. This local project is a worthy addition to our social action efforts. Donating food is a way for us to make the world a better place – Tikkun Olam.
