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: Community House
From: 5:00 pm - 6:00am
Come see old friends and make new ones as we kick off the year together! Lead by Family Engagement Music Coordinator, Shira Kobren, our Shabbat experience will be full of singing, dancing, praying and schmoozing, followed by a light dinner and a special treat! Shabbat Central is always open to all- bring your friends! No registration is needed.
Today more than ever we rely on you to support our educational, community, and spiritual programs that are so important to Central members and the Jewish community-at-large. If you are able, please support our Annual Yom Kippur Appeal today with a tax-deductible contribution.
