As part of the observance of the Jewish High Holy Days, Congregation B’nai Jeshurun, Short Hills distributes shopping bags and asks that members take them home, fill them with non-perishable goods, and return them to the Temple on Yom Kippur.  The collected food is shared with the Food Bank of New Jersey.  In the past over 6,000 pounds of food has been collected.  The Food Drive is one of the activities of the TBJ Tikkun Olam Committee, which is chaired by members Jill Altmark and Kristin Sterling.

Foods with protein are needed most.  Donated foods should not be in glass containers, or cellophane wrapping.  Suggested foods to donate include canned meats (chicken, beef stew, hearty soups), canned fish (tuna, salmon, sardines), Chili, Mac & Cheese, Peanut Butter in plastic jars, Canned Fruits & Vegetables, Canned Spaghetti Sauce, Pasta, Rice, Oatmeal, and Breakfast Cereals.  Baby Food & Formula are always needed!
