Statement on Food

The COVID-19 pandemic has affected all of us but for those who are hungry the situation has become even more difficult.

Every year during the Yamim Nora’im, the Toronto Board of Rabbis encourages members of the Jewish community to bring donations of non-perishable food items to their local synagogues.  Given the reality of Covid-19 this is currently impossible.

This year, the TBR encourages you to directly support food banks across the GTA so that others may have a happy and healthy New Year.

These are some of the local sites that are accepting both food and financial donations. The latter is preferable as it allows the food banks to stock the items that are needed the most.

Many of our synagogues work with specific food banks. Please check with your synagogue for additional ways to support the vulnerable in our community.

In whatever you can give, you know that you will be making a difference in the lives of those in need.
