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: Friday, January 11, 5:30 pm
Rabbi Buchdahl, Cantor Cadrain, Rabbi Rosenthal, and our LCLJ educators will lead us in a shorter version of our traditional Friday night service. We’ll start with a light snack at 5:30, followed by services at 6:00 in Beir Chapel and a light dinner.
Everyone is welcome! You do not need to be registered in LCLJ to attend and no registration is required. This is a family experience, so every child must be accompanied by an adult.
Please note: this will take the place of our January Shabbat Yeladim.
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.
