SOCIAL ACTION

Operation Isaiah: Beth El’s Food Drive for the High Holidays

 

Please help the Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges respond to hunger in our area by donating non-perishable food items.

Pick up a brown paper bag on Rosh Hashanah and return it to Beth El on Yom Kippur or by September 30. Bins will be located at each of the entrances.

We are only collecting the following items: peanut butter, hearty cans of soup (low sodium preferred), cans of tuna or chicken, tomato sauce (no glass jars), and jelly in plastic containers. Please no expired food, opened food or glass containers.

Alternatively, order a ShopRite gift card ideally in $25 increments and send to [email protected]

Please make sure the card has the dollar amount on it. Help us reach our goal of filling the entire Beth El lobby with Operation Isaiah grocery bags!

Reverse Tashlich
Sunday, September 12, 2-4 pm Rain or Shine

The Beth El Social Action Committee in partnership with Bat Mitzvah student Ella Kohol, the Meadowland Park Conservancy, and Repair the Sea are hosting a Reverse Tashlich.

Register here

Traditionally over High Holidays we perform the ritual of tashlich, throwing bread crumbs into a body of water to symbolize our casting away of our transgressions from the past year. Performing a “Reverse Tashlich” means we will help clean up a body of water instead. On the Sunday between Rosh Hashanah and Yom Kippur, gather at the East Branch Rahway River that runs through Meadowland Park in South Orange. We will meet on Meadowbrook Place and Clark Street. A waiver is required and can be filled out on site. This event is for ages 4 and up.
