Originally, conceived by the Synagogue Council of Massachusetts, Project Ezra encourages congregations to help their respective communities on Christmas Day. Each year Temple Beth Shalom mobilizes to prepare and deliver up to 150 home cooked meals with greetings to recipients throughout Needham who are most likely to find comfort and joy on personally receiving their meal and gift bag. This is a joint effort of Temple Beth Shalom and the Needham Community Council. Temple Beth Shalom has been involved with Project Ezra for more than two decades. Our program is chaired by Lois and Ron Sockol along with June and Richard Atkind.
There are many avenues for utilizing your talents to help make this event successful. We need people to cook the turkeys we provide, to carve the turkeys, to bake finger desserts, to assemble meals, and to deliver them to the waiting recipients. For more information, contact Lois Sockol ([email protected]) or June Atkind ([email protected]).
