The Breakfast Program, formerly known as the Caring Committee Feeding Program, is among Central Synagogue’s longest ongoing social justice projects. Originally conceived and implemented by longtime congregant Nat Shapiro in 1983, the Breakfast Program was started in response to Mayor Koch’s outcry for New York City’s religious institutions to respond to an exploding homeless and hungry problem. Today, many clients of the Breakfast Program are working poor who greatly appreciate and regularly rely on the warm, nutritious start to their day.
Currently, our volunteers are helping to distribute pre-made sandwiches and other “to-go” items from the doors in front of the Pavilion entrance. Social distancing is observed and a contactless pickup system for the food has been arranged.
From: Monday–Friday, 8:00–8:15 am
All are invited to join us each morning Monday through Friday on Zoom.

Bring some calm to the start of your day by joining Rabbi Buchdahl and special guests each Tuesday and Thursday morning for a call-in meditation practice and a little Torah. Meditation helps boost the immune system, relieve stress and anxiety, and center the mind. No experience necessary. If you can breathe, you can meditate!
