From: Thursdays & Fridays, 6:00-7:30am
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.
Currently, our volunteers are helping to distribute pre-made sandwiches and other “to-go” items from the doors in front of the Pavilion entrance. Social distancing is observed and a contactless pickup system for the food has been arranged.
Location: Pavilion & Community House
From: Fridays, 6:00pm & Saturdays, 9:30am
During the summer months, Shabbat worship will be held in the Pavilion (beneath the Main Sanctuary) on Friday evenings, and in the Rabbi Rubinstein Chapel (in the Community House) on Saturday mornings. Throughout the summer, our clergy will teach about a different prayer every Friday night. Join us! Our Shabbat worship is always open to the public.
We will continue to live stream (from the Pavilion only) all summer – click here for more ways to join.
Your tax-deductible contribution to our Annual Yom Kippur Appeal will provide for Central’s exceptional educational, community, and spiritual programs and help enrich the Jewish experience of our members and the community-at-large.
