  • Grogger meets Tzedaka via yardkay@yahoo.com
    7th grade volunteers from Yeshivat Noam are running a PASTA GROGGER DRIVE this Purim! We are asking families to bring pasta boxes to shake as groggers in shul and then donate them in their shul’s drop-box. These pasta boxes will then be distributed by the 7th grade volunteers to Tomchei Shabbos and The Jewish Federation March Mega Food Drive. Participating shuls include: Congregation Keter Torah, Congregation Rinat Yisrael, Congregation Bnai Yeshurun, Young Israel of Teaneck, Congregation Beth Abraham, Congregation Shaarei Tefilah, Congregation Ohr Hatorah, Congregation Beth Aaron & Congregation Shomrei Torah of Fair Lawn. This is a great way to add more mitzvot, meaning and purpose to all of your family’s Purim holiday fun this year!

    Food may be deposited at two locations directly inside the PODS:

    • Teaneck: 1212 Kensington Road from March 25th until Friday April 8th
    • Englewood: 160 Lyman Place from March 24th until Wednesday March 30th
    • Food may also be dropped off 777 Dearborn Ave., Teaneck until April 5th.
