Feeding our Community...

As we approach the High Holy Days and prepare to search within ourselves to repent for any wrongdoing we may have done to others, we also look for ways in which to help improve the lives of those in need and to help make the world a better place. At Temple Beth Tikvah, it has been our tradition to hold a High Holy Day Food Drive to benefit the WIN Food Pantry in Wayne which provides food to 163 Wayne families who are unable to provide adequate food for themselves.

Once again, there will be tables set up in the Chapman Atrium from Rosh Hashanah until Yom Kippur on which you can place your food donations during the ten days between the holidays. Our local Shop Rite has generously donated 200 reusable grocery bags which will be available to you during those days to be picked up and then returned filled with groceries. We will also supply you with a shopping list of most-needed items so you will have guidance as to what your purchases should be. The bags can be obtained at services on Rosh Hashanah, or, for those of you who will stream the services, bags will be available during regular temple office hours during the ten days.

Every year, the congregants of Temple Beth Tikvah have been extremely generous with their donations to the Food Drive. We surely expect the same will be true this year. If food shopping is absolutely not your thing, monetary contributions are always graciously accepted. Checks can be made payable to Wayne Interfaith Network and mailed or dropped at the Temple for me, or you can donate directly on the website Please note on your donation that you are a member of Temple Beth Tikvah.

Our neighbors in need are counting on us to help them enjoy many of the things we take for granted. Let us help them find comfort in knowing that we care about them.
