“The Big Tuna” — B’nai Torah Congregation Collects More Than 2,000 Cans of Tuna for Local Families in Need
Summer Faerman, Director of B’nai Torah Congregation’s TLC program, asked her community to donate cans of tuna fish for her birthday this year, which was yesterday – the same day as Yom Kippur. (It is tradition for Jews to fast on Yom Kippur, and donate the food they are not eating.)
And boy did the community come through!
Over 2,000 cans of tuna fish showed up at the synagogue, and will now be donated to the Rales JFS Jacobson Family Food Pantry in Delray Beach. The pantry provides non-perishable groceries, some fresh fruits and vegetables and challah every other week free of charge to those in need.
Summer leads B’nai Torah Congregation’s mitzvah and philanthropic activities, which are focused on helping the community locally and beyond.
Happy Birthday Summer, who sits on a tuna throne!!!
