Tzedakah Program

Congregation Bnai Shalom will continue helping those in need by making the mitzvah of Tzedakah a regular feature. We will highlight charities each month in addition to helping Bnai Shalom. This form of social justice is a commitment that will continue to enrich those needing support and, in turn, enrich those who donate. Please send it to the attention of our secretary, Irene Kurpen at Bnai Shalom. She in turn will place the sealed donations into the Tzedakah Box. Under the auspices of Rabbi Melody and our accountant, there will be regular accounting and distribution of the funds. You, in turn, will receive a receipt of your donation. Since the beginnings of our previous congregations, we have been an integral part of the Easton community. Our logical focus will be to serve needy recipients in our community. If you have suggestions for our upcoming Tzedakah spotlight, please send them to Herb Woolf at: herbwoolf13@gmail.com.

Charity options for monthly donations:

Please support our Community Food Pantry families during the month of June by helping us stock up on DIAPERS. Your donation can be dropped off in Founders Hall.
