Food Drives

Social justice through food security has always been a foundational cause for Rabbi Levin and Congregation Beth Torah. As we celebrate this year of transition, we’d like to run one more food drive in honor of Rabbi Levin, so we’ll be collecting non-perishable food items, paper goods, and personal care items throughout April and May. Donation bags will be available the week of April 7th, and they’ll be handed out at Friday worship and on Sunday mornings. We’d love to fill at least 250 bags—that’s ten bags for each of Rabbi Levin’s twenty-five years with Beth Torah. The donations we collect will go to the JFS Food Pantry; please leave your donations in the JFS barrels by the office until May 22nd.

JFS Passover Food Drive

You Make a Difference! Beth Torah collected 571 pounds of food for the JFS Passover Food Drive out of a total of 1746 pounds collected. That means we raised a full third of the total amount of food collected for this drive. We are the community we need!

High Holy Day Food Drive

With your amazing generosity, Beth Torah brought in 6,722.4 pounds of food donations for the 5774 High Holy Day Food Drive! BTTY members pose in front of this fantastic demonstration of loving kindness and dedication to mitzvot. Mazel tov to the youth group for facilitating another wonderful food drive.

Help Stock the Beth Torah Kitchen!

Our kitchen is a great gathering place to prepare meals and desserts for organizations like reStart and Beth Torah programs.  To continue and expand these activities, volunteers developed a wish list to stock our kitchen with supplies for cooking and baking.  

Please consider donating one or more of the following items to the Beth Torah kitchen.  Please only donate new items.  The list is also available on the Beth Torah website, which will be updated as items are received.  Thank you!
