Help keep our food pantry stocked . . .
Every time you attend an event, please bring a nonperishable food item with you. We have a collection basket located in the Social Hall of Temple Israel of Lehighton.
We are taught "Ein Kemach, ein torah." Without flour, there can be no torah. Some interpret this literally: if one is hungry, one cannot learn. Others translate torah as the proper way to live one's life. The verse might then read: Without food, one can't live an honest, proper life.
