The Breakfast Program, formerly known as the Caring Committee Feeding Program, is among Central Synagogue’s longest ongoing social justice projects. Originally conceived and implemented by longtime congregant Nat Shapiro in 1983, the Breakfast Program was started in response to Mayor Koch’s outcry for New York City’s religious institutions to respond to an exploding homeless and hungry problem. Today, many clients of the Breakfast Program are working poor who greatly appreciate and regularly rely on the warm, nutritious start to their day.
Currently, our volunteers are helping to distribute pre-made sandwiches and other “to-go” items from the doors in front of the Pavilion entrance. Social distancing is observed and a contactless pickup system for the food has been arranged.
Looking to meet other members who share your interests, passions, and life experiences? Want to build deeper relationships with individual members of this large and diverse congregation? Let us help you find your CORE Group. In these member-led groups, participants come together (online!) on a regular basis for shared learning, experiences, and conversation. Groups may be organized by demographic, topic, or interest area.
