The Religious School of Congregation Emanu-El has a long tradition of supporting the work of organizations working for social justice through weekly tzedakah donations made by its students.
Donation organizations are selected by our Religious School Student Council representatives. Following are our recipients for 2012-2013:
- New York Common Pantry
(formerly Yorkville Common Pantry)
As in past years, our weekly collection begins with an organization that feeds the hungry in our area. New York Common Pantry is New York City’s largest community-based food pantry. All contributions from the start of the school year through Thanksgiving benefit the pantry.
- Meals on Wheels
Meals on Wheels raises funds to help end senior hunger. The Meals on Wheels Association of America is the oldest and largest national organization composed of and representing local, community-based senior nutrition programs in all 50 U.S. states, as well as the U.S. territories.
NATAL seeks to provide treatment to victims of war and terror-related trauma and to strengthen the resiliency of Israeli society through treatment, prevention, public awareness and research. It trains professionals and at-risk populations in preventing and coping with trauma in accidents and emergencies. NATAL also serves as a training and research center for mental-health professionals and academics in the field of trauma.
