Donate food to Second Harvest on Yom Kippur at Congregation Beth David

As with years past, Congregation Beth David’s Social Action Committee has once again arranged for us all to participate in a mitzvah, Project Isaiah, this year. As we head into fasting for a day, on Yom Kippur, they ask that we not only share food (since we won’t be needing it during our fast), but to think of those in our community who don’t have the choice of when to fast or not, those that go hungry regularly. They ask that you:

Please help us fulfill the Mitzvah of helping the hungry.  Pick up a High Holy Day food drive bag, fill it with non-perishable food and bringing it back at Erev Yom Kippur.

All food will be donated to Second Harvest Food Bank. You can also donate directly to Second Harvest https://donate.shfb.org/vfd/ ; select “Congregation” from the ” Donor Type” drop down menu and then choose “Congregation Beth David” from the “Organization Name” menu.  Last year we donated over 3,000 pounds of food and $640 to Second Harvest!
