Fresh Food for Families – Marking Sukkot All Year Long
We have just finished the cycle of holidays including Sukkot, which is not only a celebration of the harvest but also a time of vulnerability as we “dwell” in makeshift huts. Sukkot commemorates the years that the Jews spent in the desert on their way to the Promised Land and celebrates the way in which God protected them under difficult desert conditions.
Today, many vulnerable people live in food deserts and have limited access to fresh produce. This is particularly true during the winter months. Please support our new Fresh Food for Families project by sending a check made out to B’nai Sholom marked Fresh Food. All funds will be used to provide for the purchase of fresh produce for our days at the Sister Maureen Joyce Soup Kitchen and to stock the Free Food Fridges or other efforts to provide fresh food for those in need.
