ThanksGIVING Back

The JCC of Northern New Jersey’s programming for older adults at Temple Beth Sholom in Fair Lawn has a series of upcoming mitzvah projects as part of its new “ThanksGIVING Back” program.

On November 16, participants will assemble Shabbat boxes for active Jewish military personnel. This program is sponsored by the Major Stuart Adam Wolfer Institute, Inc. MSAWI was established in memory of Major Wolfer z”l so that his legacy of leadership and commitment to his country and community service will continue to live on and to inspire future generations of children, adults and leaders.

On November 23, participants will wrap donated gifts for children that the YMCA in Paterson will be distributed. On November 30, the group will make pet toys to donate to a local animal shelter.

All programs are at 11 a.m., and they’re free, and followed by hot kosher lunch (which has a minimal cost). Covid protocols are in place. For more information, go to, email, or call (201) 666-6610, ext. 1.
