"Shir Shalom Cares" - our Sunshine and Social Outreach Committees

 

Rhoda Bloom Kosher Food Pantry

Congregation Shir Shalom  collects peanut butter, boxes of tea bags and boxes of cereal for the Rhoda Bloom Kosher Food Pantry. Donations of other Kosher, unopened, non-perishable food are also appreciated.   Look for the food collection boxes at the Synagogue.  You are welcome and encouraged to make monetary donations, and specifically state it is for the Rhoda Bloom Kosher Food Bank. [Please make your checks payable to Congregation Shir Shalom.]  All monies received will be used to buy needed food for the pantry --- and you don’t have to go shopping.

Sundays in 2023 where volunteers are needed to assist at the Pantry (starting at 9am): January 15, February 12, March 19, April 16, May 7, June 11, July 16, August 13, September 10, October 15, November 19, December 17.

Sunshine Committee

The former Nanuet Hebrew Center Chesed Committee and Montebello Jewish Center Sunshine Committee are now Congregation Shir Shalom’s Sunshine Committee.  Current organizing committee members include Andrea Caloras, Marion Fuld, Ruth Levy, Susan Orlando, Elinor Silver and Flora Silver.  We welcome your participation.  For more information, please contact the Shir Shalom Office (office@shirshalomrockland.org or 845-708-9181).

Social Outreach Committee

We are a group of congregants committed to the idea that Congregation Shir Shalom can be a partner in promoting kindness and help to those in need. Our recent and very successful High Holiday Drive to help newly arrived Ukrainian refugees and children, is proof that "Shir Shalom Cares."

If you would like to join our group, please contact Mirel Verhoeff (fromthegarden@optimum.net) or Ray Verhoeff (rverhoeff2@gmail.com). We welcome your input and help.

We wish to thank everyone from our Congregation Shir Shalom Community who came together so quickly and generously to help with the collection of urgently needed supplies for newly arrived Afghan refugees at Fort Dix and McGuire AFB in New Jersey.

We are proud that even our CenterRock USY/Kadima youth group offered their support with this important and timely project which was coordinated by the Westchester Coalition for Immigration.
