Fight Against Hunger

Join CBI in our 30th Annual Fight Against Hunger!

Each year, during the High Holy Days, we collect non-perishable food items during our Annual Fight Against Hunger! At the conclusion of Rosh Hashanah services, congregants and community guests are invited to take home as many bags as they like and fill them with non-perishable and non-breakable food items. Then, on Yom Kippur, they return the filled bags to the truck stationed in the CBI parking lot.

The food is distributed to those in need through the Jacobson Family Food Pantry of Ruth & Norman Rales Jewish Family Services, C.R.O.S Ministries and Boca Helping Hands.

If you are able to help with the distribution of bags and/or organizing food and donations please contact Andrea Cannon or Minda Shaiman.

Rosh Hashanah Food Bags

For more than 20 years, CBI’s members have come together to assemble Rosh Hashanah bags. These bags are filled with traditional Rosh Hashanah items including challah, grape juice, apples and honey that are donated to members of our community in assisted living communities to ensure they have a sweet New Year.

Wednesday, September 6th 4-6pm.

If you would like to help assemble bags, please RSVP to minda@cbiboca.org.
