Mitzvah cooking, that is.  The Social Action Committee of Adath Emanu-El cooks on the second Tuesday of even-numbered months in our kitchen.  We cook for Providence House (a shelter), some of our own congregants in need, and for clients of Jewish Family and Children’s Services.  We fix ziti, salad and dessert for 36 people or more, and regularly need help purchasing the ingredients.  We need uncooked ziti, ricotta cheese, prepared pasta sauce, parmesan cheese, salad ingredients and cupcakes or cookies for dessert.   

Let us know that you can sponsor, or co-sponsor a session by purchasing the ingredients we need. Contact the Adath Emanu-El office or Cheryl Sperber at (856)824-0921 the week before our cooking sessions to let us know what you're bringing.   You’re even welcome to prepare the food with us in the synagogue kitchen (@ 7 PM).  Doing a mitzvah is a wonderful feeling.  Please join us now.
