For many years, the congregants of TBE have generously donated bags of food to Person-to-Person (P2P) during the High Holiday Food Drive. In fact, our Temple has donated more food than any other religious institution in Fairfield County. Our efforts have made a difference in the lives of so many of our neighbors.
This year, because of the pandemic, our help to ensure there is ample food at P2P is needed more than ever. However, given the challenges of the pandemic, we will be conducting our High Holiday Food Drive a bit differently this year.
DISTRIBUTION OF BAGS
The bags that are usually distributed during Rosh Hashanah services can be picked up at the Temple beginning Tuesday, September 8th. Congregants can use their own bags, if preferred.
