Breakfast Program

Location: Lese Lobby

From: Thursdays & Fridays, 6:00-7:30am

Details:

The Breakfast Program, formerly known as the Caring Committee Feeding Program, is among Central Synagogue’s longest ongoing social justice projects. Originally conceived and implemented by longtime congregant Nat Shapiro in 1983, the Breakfast Program was started in response to Mayor Koch’s outcry for New York City’s religious institutions to respond to an exploding homeless and hungry problem. Today, many clients of the Breakfast Program are working poor who greatly appreciate and regularly rely on the warm, nutritious start to their day. Volunteers assemble every Thursday and Friday morning in Lese Lobby (Community House) to prepare and serve the most important meal of the day. A bag lunch is also handed out to clients. These lunches are prepared the prior evening as part of Central Synagogue’s Sandwich Making Program. Volunteers must be in the 6th grade or older; those under the age of 18 must be accompanied by an adult.

Sign up is required in advance to volunteer. For more information or to sign up, contact breakfast@censyn.org.

For Central Members 65+
Join us for a Tu BiSh’vat Seder, as we celebrate the Jewish New Year of trees! Observed on the 15th day of the Hebrew month of Sh’vat at a time when trees in Israel are first starting to bloom, modern Jews celebrate it as a day of environmental awareness, expressing joy and thankfulness for trees, harvests, and the natural world. At our Seder we will dine on the seven Biblical species (“A land of wheat, and barley, and vines, and fig trees, and pomegranates; a land of olive oil and honey [Deut. 8:8].”) – and share stories about our own roots.
