Birthright Trips To Israel

USY is again partnering with Taglit-Birthright to send our alumni to Israel- FOR FREE.

If you are 18-26 years old, you may be eligible for a free 10-day trip to Israel December 21-31 through Taglit-Birthright, even if you have already participated in an educational program in Israel before you were 18 years old, including USY Israel Pilgrimage (or Ramah Seminar, Schechter school trips, etc.).

Shutafim, a partnership of Conservative youth organizations, has been working closely with Birthright Israel and The Israel Experience to offer USY, Ramah, Schechter, and JTS alumni and their friends the opportunity to travel to Israel for FREE with a community of peers from other Conservative programs. 

If you are interested, please apply here or go to Birthright.

An Urgent Message From The Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges

The Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges is so incredibly grateful for the yearly High Holiday support from food collections at Temple Beth Shalom, Congregation Beth El, Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel and Temple B'nai Jeshrun. Your donations help us provide supplemental and emergency food to low-income residents of Orange and East Orange. In 2013, we served 4,573 clients, which adds up to over 14,000 individuals over the course of the year. Nearly 40 percent of our recipients are children.  The reason for our urgent request is simple: we distribute over 6800 food items a month to individuals.


We're asking you to help us, if possible, in a slightly different way this year. An enormous effort is required to complete this food distribution, with at least 20 volunteers a week bringing groceries to the IFPO, sorting goods, stocking the shelves, and bagging each week's distribution. To eliminate the need for sorting of the High Holiday food, and to make shelving physically easier for our volunteers by eliminating having to move food multiple times, we'd love for congregants to each pick just one item from the list below. Fill your bag(s) with only that one item. So, for example, please just bring us a bag of tuna, or just bring a bag of peanut butter, or just bring a bag of soup. And we'd love you NOT to bring us some items we've requested in the past - pasta, cereal, mac and cheese, dessert, or anything in a container a hungry mouse might choose to nibble on:)


Our preferred list:


--Peanut butter

--Soup (please - no boxed soups) (hearty soups with protein preferred)

--Protein meals (canned ravioli, lasagna, beef stew, spam, chili with meat, canned spaghetti and meatballs)

--Canned tuna or chicken, sardines or salmon

--Pasta Sauce (in cans, not glass)

--Jelly (in plastic, not glass)

--Canned Green vegetables (green beans, peas, mixed vegetables, spinach)

--Canned Corn or Potatoes

--Canned Carrots or Beets

--Canned Fruit

--Canned Beans
