The Prophet Isaiah teaches us, “This is the fast I desire…. it is to share your bread with the hungry.”
Shaare Emeth will collect nutritious canned or non-perishable foods during the High Holidays. Supplies will be split between the St. Louis Area Food Bank and the Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry, which are in desperate need of food and money to purchase food.
Monetary donations are also welcome in cash or checks payable to “Shaare Emeth Food Drive.” A portion of the monetary donations will be allocated to the organization Mazon, A Jewish Response to Hunger.
Donations can be brought with you when you come for services during Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, or Monday-Friday between September 26-October 6.
