Thanks to everyone who brought donations during the High Holiday Food Drive. In these hard economic times, people are still in need. Please remember to bring non-perishable items to the SOVA barrels in the synagogue lobby. High priority items include the toiletries such as shampoo, conditioner, soap, toothpaste & toothbrushes in regular and individual sizes as well as baby food and diapers, sizes 1-6.
Most importantly, if you are in need, please remember that SOVA's services are here for you.
