JOIN us with MINYAN MAKER
A group of adult TBS members are having their B'not Mitzvah on July 30, 2011. They are inviting the Congregation to join their Bat Mitzvah gift project by contributing children's diapers to The Diaper Bank (TDB). Through its extensive Diaper Distribution Network, TDB provides over 200,000 free diapers monthly to poor and low-income families in New Haven, Bridgeport, and Hartford.
Please drop off diaper packages in the pink bin located by the stairwell to the lower floor of the building.

TBS Contributes To CT Food Bank
Six adults and three teens led the TBS volunteers at the May 1 CT Food Bank walk held under clear skies at East Rock Park on Sunday, May 1, 2011. TBS Members and walkers, plus teenage guests from Hamden High, and our supporters donated about $ 210 for the CT Food Bank. Those funds also support, through the CT Food Bank, local food banks and soup kitchens. Co-chairs were Diane Kaplan and Lila Fain. Yaffa Fain, Leyah Savage and Emily Jones joined our TBS team, from Hamden High. Gerry and Miriam Putterman guarded a Whitney Avenue crossing, on this beautiful New Haven afternoon. Marge and Gary Drucker and Lila and Gordon Fain completed the walk. Michael Brooks, Marge and Gary helped meet our team total. Thanks too to all Members and Temple guests who sent donations on line, at the Shul, or walked individually.
Isaiah Fund is Expanding
The Isaiah Food Project is Temple Beth Sholom’s ongoing initiative providing specifically identified grocery items to area food banks every month. Since it started in September of this year, there have been multiple deliveries to both the Jewish Family Service and the Hamden Food Banks. Approximately $250 was spent per delivery per food bank which meant that over 200 lbs of food was delivered to each agency each month.
