Beth Emet Soup Kitchen
Ten years ago, a dedicated group of Beth Emet congregants, supported by Rabbi Peter Knobel, Rabbi Andrea London and our Board of Directors, Beth Emet established our soup kitchen. Each week, through the generous commitment of many, many volunteers, the Soup Kitchen serves a nutritious and appealing dinner, in a dignified environment, to approximately 100 guests.
Guests often enjoy live background music while they dine, and receive a sack lunch afterwards.
Not only are we feeding hungry people, the Soup Kitchen has been a "bridge of understanding" between us as Jews and the many guests who dine with us each week, for whom we are the only knowledge they may have of Jewish people.
Donate to the Soup Kitchen Coat Drive
The Soup Kitchen Committee is collecting winter coats and scarves to distribute to the Soup Kitchen guests on December 18. If you have adult size coats and scarves that are clean and in good condition (not ripped or broken) that you would like to donate, please drop them in the large box in the Beth Emet Foyer. There is a particularly big need for men's coats.
This collection of winter coats and scarves provides the guests with warm outer clothing for the winter months. They are always grateful for receiving your generous donations.
Thank you for supporting the Soup Kitchen.
