Temple Israel has received its assignment for the coming year from Family Table, a community program which provides kosher food to over 150 needy Jewish households in the Boston area. Temple Israel's assignment will be collecting kosher peanut butter and raisins. Temple Israel is responsible for 40 jars of kosher peanut butter and 40 boxes of kosher raisins each month. Please note that Temple Israel's assignment has been changed and we are no longer being asked to provide tuna fish, but raisins instead.
Please think about bringing a jar of peanut butter or a box of raisins with you when you come to the Temple. You can leave the kosher peanut butter and raisins in the designated basket next to the Baker's Rack in the Sherman Lobby. Family Table thanks the members of Temple Israel for their support throughout the year and especially its help with deliveries and special appeals.
