Temple Beth Elohim's relationship with Family Table, Greater Boston's Kosher Food Pantry. Each month, we collect various items (usually cans of tuna and boxes of cereal) to donate to Family Table. Operated by Jewish Family and Children's Service, Family Table
provides healthy food on a monthly and emergency basis to individuals and families in need. Its mission is to alleviate hunger in a way that meets nutritional and spiritual needs. Learn more about Family Table on the JF&CS website.
We are proud to say that our community donated over 600 cans of tuna this month to support this effort, all of which will be brought to Family Table by members of the TBE Tikkun Olam team.
The Talmud (and Rabbi Saphire!) teaches about the commandment of persum ha nes - publicizing the miracle! Throughout Chanukah, we cherish the opportunity to gather with friends and family, celebrate the miracles in our own lives in addition to those of our ancestors, and share the celebration of Chanukah with others by proudly displaying our Chanukiyot and festive decorations in our windows...and, in this case, in our Community Gathering Spaces at TBE!
Many thanks to our students, faculty, Educators and lay leadership for making this special communal mitzvah possible! Check out some of the pictures from our "canstruction" by navigating through the slideshow below:
