High Holy Day Food Drive

High Holy Day Food Drive

Last year we donated 6,000 lbs. of food. Help us reach 10,000 lbs. in 2019

While many of us will voluntarily fast on Yom Kippur – some in the Conejo Valley face non-voluntary fasts because they lack sufficient money for food. You can make a difference!

Our food donations go to Manna (mannaconejo.org), our local food pantry that provides assistance to seniors and to others experiencing temporary setbacks and emergencies. Manna can only do its important work because of donations like ours.

There are two easy ways to donate food!

Order these items from the on line store of your choice and have them delivered directly to temple from Sept. 15th  thru Oct. 1st.

  • Canned Stew
  • Canned Chili
  • Hot Cereal
  • Boxed Potatoes
  • Hamburger Helper
