Mitzvah Opportunity

New Challenge – Help us donate 100 emergency food bags to Jewish Family Services of Central NJ!

We have been incredibly successful in packing bags for those in need for JFS – so successful in fact that we have a new challenge for you: can we donate enough food to make 100 bags for the month of May? Here is how you can participate: donate your nonperishable Kosher food items at the Temple in the black boxes outside of the wooden or glass doors, help pack bags on May 25 at 4:00 PM, or make a donation here.

Thank you to all who donated and help pack bags for Jewish Family Services of Central NJ.

Thank you to all our volunteers, our wonderful staff and the more than 170 carloads of Temple families who came out to support our Chanukah Drive-thru, donated to Jewish Family Service toy and emergency food drives, and helped pack the emergency food bags for Jewish Family Service of Central New Jersey
Thanks to you we collected a mountain of toys and a second mountain of much-needed food.
