MASBIA Needs PSJC!!
Join other PSJC volunteers at Masbia, the kosher soup kitchen at 1372 Coney Island Ave., near Avenue J, from 12:00-2:00PM on Sunday, December 3 and Sunday, January 8. Masbia's meals sustain hundreds of people in need; we have been working with them for five years to peel, chop, shlep and do whatever's useful, in support of their mission. Children over age 10, teens and adults welcome to roll up their sleeves and help feed our hungry neighbors. Please contact Helen Zelon for details or additional information.

Past Events

With sincere thanks to the scores of community members, age almost 1 - almost 91, who came out on an icy Sunday to work on behalf of the wider community, it's a pleasure to say that our 3rd Annual Day of Service was a rowdy, rousing success. Together, we made:
  • over 125 fresh meals
  • provisions for 3200+ soup-meals
  • 300+ (each) snack kits, PB&J sandwiches, toiletry kits
  • dozens of boxes of books, bags of clothing
  • gorgeous crafts (knitters rule!!) and more.  
Profound thanks to Florence Hutner, Lisa Altshuler, Laura Wolff, Helene Santo and Deena Steinfeld for their above-and-beyond service, and to our own fearless leader, Rabbi Carie, along with Patrick, Angelica, Aileen and Sarah, PSJC's stellar home team, for making the day great. The work continues beyond the day: we have monthly Sunday shifts at Masbia (soup kitchen) and will continue to collect books and toiletries 'on the regular.' For info, contact hzelon@gmail.com.  So proud of this community -- and beyond grateful.
