The Temple B’nai Abraham Social Action Committee stewarded its Annual High Holy Day Food Drive between Rosh HaShanah and Yom Kippur. With unemployment on the rise and benefits running out, more people have turned to food pantries for support. As a result food pantry shelves are empty every day.

This year the response by the TBA congregational family to the urgent need for donations of non-perishable foods and other staples was overwhelming. More than three tons of food was collected for Community Hunger Outreach Warehouse at Livingston’s St. Philomena’s Church. Through this effort, under the guidance CHOW organizer Sister Barbara, the tireless outreach person in the St. Philomena’s community, necessary items were collected from numerous local congregations, groups and businesses, and stored at St. Philomena’s. From there, they are distributed to soup kitchens and food pantries in Newark, Orange and East Orange. Open to families on a drop-in basis, the St. Philomena’s warehouse serves local residents as well. Kings of Livingston and Morristown donated the brown grocery bags.

In addition to our donations to CHOW, B’nai Abraham will make deliveries to the kosher food pantry housed at Oheb Shalom congregation in South Orange.

Extra Time

It was close to 70 minutes into the match and I had to go to the bathroom.  Badly.

As fans watching the World Cup know too well, bathroom breaks are a serious dilemma, especially for those who don’t have a TV in the loo.  This biological necessity is exasperated by beer, which during World Cup matches also fuels a strong propensity to throw chairs and instigate riots.

Filters remove particles from the air, keeping ...
