High Holiday 2020 Tzedek Projects

Please join Shaare Emeth in supporting our tzedakah (charity) projects this high holiday season with donations to help improve schools and provide food to those in need.

Help our local food pantries

Send a check. The Harvey Kornblum Food Pantry and the St. Louis Foodbank are most in need of monetary donations. Please mail your check directly to the food banks listed below or go to the links provided to make a direct donation.

Support Oak Hill Elementary

Oak Hill Elementary is a South City school in an immigrant community. Due to COVID-19, Oak Hill Principal Dr. Tina Hamilton has asked our congregation to donate script cards for food and supplies for specific needy families. Please make contributions through Venmo @ShaareEmeth or by sending a check made payable to Congregation Shaare Emeth. Please write in the memo of the check or in Venmo: Oak Hill Elementary School. We will purchase the script cards and get them to the school. Any amount is welcome.
