Rosh Hashanah and Chanukah Gift Drives

Be a Part of our Holiday Gift to the Boston Community 

If you would like to help out with A Light Through the Ages, our Chanukah Cantata, by ushering, greeting, making phone calls, sending emails, or cleaning up, please get in touch with Paula Dickerman at We’d love to have you join us behind the scenes for this beautiful event!

Rosh Hashanah and Chanukah gift drives have collected books, school supplies, and school uniforms for our adopted Fifth Grade class. Central Reform also participates in the periodic clean-up days at the campus.

High Holy Day Food Drive  Central Reform Temple holds a yearly Food Drive to benefit the Greater Boston Food Bank. We also see our collection effort in action throughout the year as we help with bi-weekly food distribution at the Tobin School. This program distributes food to Tobin School families who need assistance.

The congregation collected 780 pounds of food during the High Holy Days. This translates into 650 meals for our neighbors who are hungry. In addition, we received $400 in donations that we were able to give directly to the Greater Boston Food Bank.
