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: Lese Lobby
From: 5:00 pm - 6:00pm
Join us for a special Shabbat Central under the sukkah. You may choose to attend either Friday night for Pizza in the Hut or Saturday morning for Bagels in the Hut. You can also join us for Simchat Torah Central as we celebrate the Torah. We complete the annual reading of the Torah and start to read it from the beginning again!
Help our Synagogue continue to shine brightly as a force of optimism and hope by donating to our annual campaign. Your gift will help support everything that makes Central unique and special.
