Beth Ami Begins Tzedakah Project

Beth Ami Colorado Congregation for Humanistic Judaism is beginning a year-long Tzedakah project. Beth Ami CCHJ and the Jewish Cultural School are collecting canned goods for the Harry and Jeanette Weinberg Food Pantry at Jewish Family Service in Denver. It is located at 3201 S. Tamarac Drive. Members and guests will bring a food item each time they attend a Beth Ami community event and/or attend Jewish Cultural School.

Don Griss, one of Beth Ami’s founding members, is a regular volunteer at the Weinberg Pantry. The Pantry assists families and individuals facing hunger and food insecurity. The Pantry serves as a site for food commodity distribution to seniors through a collaboration with The Food Bank of the Rockies and the Commodity Supplemental Food Program.

The most needed items at the Pantry are: protein (canned tuna, salmon, and chicken, canned vegetables, canned fruits, carbohydrates (pasta and rice), and soup (canned and dry).  Please see Beth Ami’s website for more information.
