Representatives of Temple Emanuel of the Pascack Valley participated in the annual Upper Pascack Valley CROP Hunger Walk, this year on October 17, in Park Ridge. The shul has been part of this fight to feed the hungry for the past 40 years. This year, more than 174 congregants and friends contributed over $18,000 to the walk, creating a shul record.

Marty Price, Temple Emanuel’s Crop Walk chair, said, “We have a small but eager group of walkers, who look forward to this event every year. At this point, Temple Emanuel’s team is the sixth ranked team in the country for 2021. That’s up two places from last year.”

The Crop Walk continues to fight against the challenges of disease, disaster, and displacement that leaves people hungry. There are 612 walks through the country, which so far have registered 2,634 teams and 13,876 participants. Nationally, as of November 17, almost $6 million was raised, and a few more walks are scheduled.
