Congregation Or Shalom, 205 Old Grassy Hill Road released this week’s holiday schedule:
Here is a VIDEO of Democratic challenger Ken Lenz and Republican First Selectman Jim Zeoli responding to the question, “What do you think is the #1 need in Orange?”
Each year, on Rosh Hashanah, after the Rabbi’s sermon, brown paper shopping bags are distributed for Operation Isaiah, the annual Kol Nidre food drive appeal. It is a tradition at Or Shalom to hand out the bags as people leave on the first day of Rosh Hashanah, Sunday, Sept. 13.
Members take the bags home and then return them filled with non-perishable grocery items during the week prior to Yom Kippur [Sept 14-18] or as they come to synagogue for Kol Nidre, Tuesday, Sept. 22.
Financial donations also are accepted, and checks can be made out to “Congregation Or Shalom” and note in the memo Operation Isaiah.
Last year Congregation Or Shalom collected 5,300 pounds of food, that equates to 4,416 meals.
