Community Mitzvot – This is the Time to Give

midnightMidnight Run

During the winter months our congregation participates in the Midnight Run, providing a meal, clothing and toiletries for New York City’s homeless. This is a perfect opportunity for CBY families to help others in a very meaningful and direct way. Our families donate essential items and food, prepare meals and pack up clothing/ blankets, and drive to NYC to deliver the donations to the homeless. While we are helping the homeless, we break through the barriers of prejudice and fear that separate us from “the homeless” and learn to see them as real people. Sign up to help.
