Tributes and Remembrances
 

During the High Holy Days, we remember loved ones. One of the most beautiful annual traditions at Temple Ohabei Shalom is the listing of the names of our departed in a scroll book. This year, our Scroll Book will be a video, available digitally on Yom Kippur afternoon, during the Yizkor service. We invite you to honor those who are no longer with us by including their names in our Digital Yizkor Scroll Book this year. To do so, click here, and you will be able to add names to our Digital Yizkor Scroll Book or purchase a bookplate in honor of those you are remembering.

Please submit your names using the link above by Wednesday, September 28th.

Annual High Holy Day Food Drive

As a community, we address the injustice of food insecurity every year by bringing bags full of groceries with us to synagogue on Yom Kippur. This act of tzedakah, of giving to those in need, is one of the ways that we work to become inscribed in the Book of Life.

With even more people in need due to the pandemic, we seek to maintain our commitment to three local organizations addressing food insecurity in Greater Boston: Family Table, The Grow Clinic at Boston Medical Center, and The Brookline Food Pantry.

  • Make a financial donationAll money donated through TOS and designated for the HHD Food Drive will be split between the three organizations. Monetary donations are a great way to give because our partners are able to buy food at a discount, we limit in-person interaction to keep everyone healthy, and if you give through TOS, we can measure our communal impact. For a suggested donation amount, think about how many bags of groceries you would donate in a year and multiply that number by $36. Donations can be made by clicking the link above or mailed to TOS, 1187 Beacon Street, Brookline, MA 02446. Please write "HHD Food Drive" in the memo.
  • Donate $25 gift cards to Target, Wal-Mart, and area grocery stores. These will be donated to the Grow Clinic and will allow people to shop for their own groceries and needs. We are happy to accept them by mail or at any in-person services.
  • Drop off bags of non-perishable items on Yom Kippur. We’ll have volunteers to help sort and deliver the food. We need non-perishable items, especially tuna and whole grain cereal. For a more detailed Amazon Wish List, please click here.

If you have any questions about our Annual Food Drive, please email us at cdezii@ohabei.org.
