Thanksgiving Community Dinner


This annual mitzvah on the day before Thanksgiving provides dinner
for senior citizens and women and children from New York City homeless
and domestic-violence shelters.







Wednesday, November 22, 2017 • 2 PM to 6:15 PM • I.M. Wise Hall

Please note: There are no more seats available for the dinner,
and we have only a few volunteer spots remaining.



Temple members are needed for setup, kitchen duty, greeting our guests, serving dinner
and cleanup; we also need turkey carvers to help slice 20 turkeys. Members of the Saviv and Streicker Center communities are invited to help. Starting at 4 PM, teens and “tweens” are needed to chaperone and play with our youngest guests.

In addition, we seek volunteers to make homemade baked goods (cookies, brownies, cupcakes...no nuts or frosting, please!) that we can serve at the dinner. Baked goods should
be dropped off to the 65th Street lobby on the Tuesday before Thanksgiving or on that
Wednesday by 2 PM.

Volunteers must register with the Tikkun Olam Committee.
Use “Thanksgiving Dinner” as the subject of your email message.
