Mitzvah ProjectWe are continuing our association with Rina Shkolnik Food Pantry in Woodmere run by the UJA – Federation in association with the JCC of the Greater 5 Towns.

Please bring your donations (food, paper goods, health care products, detergents, soap, diapers, baby wipes etc.) to the synagogue and we’ll deliver them to the Food Pantry. Remember all products should have a Kosher seal on them.
