A Package Tour

A Package Tour

A group of 60 members of Central Synagogue in Manhattan, including the Reform congregation’s senior rabbi, Angela Buchdahl, and its assistant rabbi, Ari Lorge, visited Pantry Packers, a food packaging facility in Jerusalem, part of the Colel Chabad network of services for Israel’s poor and needy.

The group, which visited Israel last month, packaged 58 boxes, for a total of more than 1,900 pounds of rice, which can feed 435 families for a month.

“It’s wonderful when multiple generations of families and congregants can come to Israel together, but it’s even better when they take time out of their touring schedule to give back to Israel’s neediest families,” said Rabbi Menachem Traxler, director of volunteering for Colel Chabad.
