Come out for Family Mitzvah Day at Adath, a part of the 3rd Annual Community Mitzvah Day, where you can be a part of a program aimed at alleviating hunger in America.  Join us for mitzvah cooking.  We are cooking for Providence House (a shelter), congregants in need, and for clients of Jewish Family and Children’s Services - Betsy & Peter Fischer Food Pantry.

Up for a Peanut Butter Venture?  If so, then come help make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches to be sent to a homeless shelter.  Maybe you're the artistic type and would like to knock out hunger.  There's a poster design contest to raise awareness of hunger in America.  The winning design will be featured in the lobby and on food collection bins.  There will be bowling, cookie/cupcake, and bag decorating, and plenty of other activities to help alleviate hunger in America.

There will be something for all ages.  Come one, come all!  Contact Maria Kelly

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.
