The Kantor Family Center for Justice will once again be organizing collections to serve our community that would otherwise go without. Items are collected in our blue bins located outside our school or you can purchase collection items through our Amazon account and directly ship to “Congregation B’nai Israel Inc.” Below is a list of upcoming/ongoing collections:
October – High Holy Day Food Collection
November – Feed the Community at Ebenezer Baptist Church
December – Give Back Christmas Feast
February – Lori Sklar Mitzvah Day
We also have a Shabbat Food Pantry Collection every Friday evening, as well as, Saturday morning at Shabbat Services, where a carton is placed outside the Sanctuary doors accepting donations for the Food Pantry. Please consider bringing a non-perishable item to donate.
Committees are being formed to oversee the collections. If you are interested in being on a committee, please advise Minda Shaiman in the CBI office or Andrea T. Cannon. Community Service will be given to all students.
KFCJ Social Action/Social Justice Committee – Brit Olam
We are organizing a KFCJ Social Action/Social Justice Committee to volunteer on initiatives designated by the Religious Action Center, as we are a registered Brit Olam Congregation. A Brit Olam Congregation commits to acting together to create a world in which all people experience justice, compassion and wholeness. Please contact Andrea or Minda if you are interested in helping to create this important volunteer work.
