Love your neighbour as yourself
- Leviticus 19:18
We have two new food pantries here at Holy Blossom Temple, and we need your help to replenish them! The Torah commands us to take special care for those who live near us, and here on Bathurst Street, we are striving to protect and provide for the food insecure in our neighbourhood. Our food pantries, located on the corner of Bathurst and Dewborne, are just one way we are living this mitzvah.
How can you help?
Bring in canned, dry, and shelf-stable food so that we can keep the Janis Rotman Tzedakah Centre well stocked. From there, amazing Holy Blossom Temple volunteers are bringing our donations out to the food pantries! Pasta, canned fish or chicken, beans, tomatoes, vegetables, cereal and more* are all wonderful things to bring in. With your help, we can keep the food pantries stocked throughout the summer and into the fall.
Want to volunteer?
Reach out to Rabbi Samuel Kaye ([email protected]) and let him know. We are looking for volunteers of all ages and stages to help us fulfill this mitzvah and care for our neighbours.
