Family Table is the response of the Greater Boston Jewish community to the needs of Jewish area families who cannot afford the basic necessities of life. Family Table collects food, paper goods, personal hygiene items, as well as Shabbat candle, challah, and ritual items appropriate to various Jewish holidays. Temple Aliyah collects food throughout the year and delivers it to the Family Table food pantry located at 1430 Main Street in Waltham. This year, we are responsible for collecting 45 cans of kosher soup and 45 packages of kosher raisins per month. We CAN do it! Once a month or more, please remember Family Table when you do your shopping and bring your donations of kosher soup and raisins when coming to synagogue any time other than on Shabbat. Please leave them in the boxes outside the synagogue office in the Temple's Religious School lobby. For further information, or to help with the distributions that take place the first Sunday of each month in Waltham, contact Marla Simon.
