Circle of Care Partnership
Join Adath Israel Brotherhood as we partner with Circle of Care to adopt a Kosher Meals on Wheels route.
Circle of Care volunteers deliver over 154,000 meals a year to seniors and individuals with disabilities in our community, many who are holocaust survivors.
We are looking for members of our Brotherhood to volunteer once a month. Deliveriers start between 9:00 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. and all routes are designed to be finished within
1 ½ to 2 hours to ensure food safety. The route we choose will be ours to do.
If you are interested in helping our Brotherhood adopt a route, please contact:
Sheldon Wayne at email@example.com or
Gary Stoller at firstname.lastname@example.org
Our Brotherhood group takes great pride in being a part of the fabric that makes our synagogue unique and vibrant.
