Yom Kippur Food Drive 5773 was a HUGE success!
Thank you, Evelina Trost, for coordinating the Temple Beth El High Holy Day Food Drive and for getting 1,000+ grocery bags along with Caleb Seidler. Thank you TBE Teen volunteers! With your help, TBE collected 3,350 pounds of food - 100 pounds more than last year! - which will feed a family of four 558 meals or 2,233 individual meals. Thank you to the entire TBE community for helping support TBE Teens & Second Harvest! You helped put food on the table for so many Charlotte families!
From Second Harvest's Toni Morris: "What a great job! We can't thank you enough for your continued support of the food bank. It is caring people like you that continue to make my job a little easier."
Each year Temple Beth El participates in "The Corners of Our Fields," an unprecedented joint appeal by the Conservative, Reform and Reconstructionist movements and MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger. The appeal seeks donations of non-perishable food for local charities and funds for MAZON, which makes grants to nonprofit organizations confronting hunger in the U.S., Israel and in poor countries throughout the world. Our Senior Youth Group, LIBERTY, helps to accomplish this goal. Worshippers are given bags on Erev Rosh Hashanah to fill and return with food on Kol Nidre.
