Join us on Christmas Day 2014 when Touro Synagogue hosts the full lunch-time meal at the Rebuild Center.

The Rebuild Center is run primarily by Catholic organizations and Christmas is one of their holy and family days. In an effort to give their usual volunteers an opportunity to spend the holiday with their families, we will fully support the lunch on Christmas day. Volunteers are needed to cook, serve and entertain 150-200 homeless people. There will be many opportunities for the entire Touro community to get involved with this wonderful mitzvah.

This is what we will need:

• Donations of cookies, small pies or cakes, cups, plastic utensils, paper napkins

• Monetary donations for food purchases (turkeys, ingredients for side dishes)

• Baked desserts

• Candy, socks, toothbrushes, and treat bags as favors for the clients

• Cooks to assist in the preparation of the food (Dates to be announced)

• Servers (limited number) for the meal on Christmas Day

• Christmas carolers

If you have any questions contact Chris Kahn at or Jeanne Kessler at
