Remember the Hungry:
STAT Kol Nidre Food Drive

Please participate in our food drive to support the Central PA Food Bank and the Jewish Family Service (JFS) Food Pantry. You may donate to the Central PA Food Bank Virtual Food Drive as part of the Chisuk Emuna group here. This virtual food drive will enable the food bank to purchase food such as fresh fruit, vegetables and dairy in bulk at less than wholesale prices.


Jewish Family Service is accepting both food and monetary donations, although it has expressed a preference for monetary donations. Regardless of the way you donate, JFS is appreciative of your donation and will put it to good use. On Rosh Hashanah, there will be grocery bags available in the lobby for food donations of non-perishable items.


Please bring your food donations to the Kol Nidre service- or earlier in the week. For those making monetary donations to JFS, please visit the JFS website, or send a check to JFS (3333 North Front Street, Harrisburg, PA 17110). Your monetary donation will enable JFS to purchase and distribute perishable foods such as bread, milk, cheese, eggs and poultry to families facing financial hardship.
