The Exclamation Point!!!

What a tremendous feeling it was to gather with over 50 members of Temple Shalom this morning at the Newton Food Pantry as we unloaded the truck that our congregation filled over the course of Yom Kippur. I cannot even begin to imagine how many tens of thousands of pounds of food we unloaded and sorted.

Seeing a community from age 2 to 80 work together felt like an enormous exclamation point to the words we spoke during our holy day. Yashar Kaoch (well-done) to everyone who helped out — whether by bringing goods to the truck, unloaded the hundreds of bags from the truck and especially to those ran to and fro sorting and packing the Food Pantry.
