Rosh Hashanah Meals Available
Thanks to the incredible generosity of Chaim Goldfeder of Kosher Palate in Texas, through the Texas Jewish Community Response, Jewish Federation staff will be distributing 75 kosher High Holiday family meal boxes tomorrow morning, Monday, September 6.

From 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., those looking for kosher meals for the upcoming High Holidays may come to the parking lot of the Goldring-Woldenberg Jewish Community Campus to pick up a box while supplies last. (Each box feeds approximately four people over four meals.)

We are grateful for the support of so many around the country and around the world as we approach the new year.
