Connecticut Food Bank needs your help! We're all busy this holiday season, and you can help by clicking on this link and making a donation to Connecticut Food Bank's Virtual Food Drive. This link is an on-line fundraising mechanism that the Food Bank uses to raise the funds they need to purchase food for those in need. While it looks as though you are purchasing food you are simply making a donation to Connecticut Food Bank. They will use the money to provide food!

The most powerful typhoon in recorded history has left thousands dead in the Philippines and many are without hope and homeless. We are presently collecting funds to provide urgent humanitarian relief and long term support for recovery. If you would like to help please write your check to Congregation Beth El - Tikun Olam and earmark it for Philippines Relief. We will make sure that your donations will be sent directly to Joint Distribution Committee and American Jewish World Service, both of which are very worthy and reliable relief organizations.
