Mitzvah Day Soup Making for JFCS

This past cold Sunday morning, 14 enthusiastic congregants gathered in the Adath kitchen to prepare three huge pots of hearty soup for the JFCS Kosher Food Pantry. First we cut, diced, peeled and grated fresh vegetables. Then we put them into pots, added stock and fresh herbs, and stirred. As the flavors blended, the aroma filled the kitchen. Then after some kibbutzing, sampling, and seasoning, we produced 40 quarts (160 servings) of fabulous lentil barley soup! As a result, seniors in our community will have hot, homemade soup this winter.

Thanks go to: Randi Alexander, Ed Alpern, Etta Bray, Janet Cohen, Carol Dubin, Mike Holloway, Marcia Margolis, Rebecca Mercuri, Sally Moses, Holly Rubin, Vicki Russo, Judi Weiner and Alyssa Wolf for their culinary efforts.

Special thanks also go to: the Hebrew School children for decorating labels for the containers, Julia Dubin for designing the flyer, and Scott Dubin for assisting with the food shopping and schlepping.

Our congregants not only performed a mitzvah, but also found it satisfying to work together on a “hands-on” project and achieve tangible (and delicious) results. Women’s League provided the ingredients and Adath chefs did the rest. Thank you all!

All checks are made payable to: Adath Israel Women’s League.

How it works: Adath Israel Women’s League volunteers will decorate the baskets. wrap the candies and deliver them to Adath Israel so that on the day of your simcha, all that you’ll need to do is to put the baskets of candy on the bimah steps. Think of the time it will save you—shopping for the candies, netting, ribbon, and wrapping. Additionally you are performing a Mitzvah by purchasing the candies -as the monies go to a variety of programs benefitting Adath Israel.

Price schedule:

100 pieces: $75.00
150 pieces: $113.00
200 pieces: $150.00
