Wayne’s Shomrei Torah and Temple Beth Tikvah are sponsoring a High Holy Days non-perishable food and basic necessities drive to benefit the Wayne Interfaith Network and other local charities as they work to help alleviate ongoing hunger and need in Wayne Township.

The two synagogues join Conservative and Reform congregations throughout the United States in an effort to fight hunger and help the less fortunate. Donations can be dropped off at either location during the weekdays leading up to and between the High Holy Days.

Donated items should be regular size (not super size) and in non-glass containers. Please check expiration dates. Monetary donations are also welcome and should be payable to the Wayne Interfaith Network.

The Wayne Interfaith Network is a nonprofit, tax-exempt organization that operates a pantry for people in the Wayne area. The WIN volunteers come from synagogues and other organizations in Wayne. For more information, go to www.winfoodpantry.org. The Social Action Committee of Temple Beth Tikvah coordinates its High Holy Days Project and Shomrei Torah works under the auspices of Operation Isaiah.
