ALIVE! AND THE HIGH HOLIDAYS - Support Operation Isaiah

AAC supports ALIVE! at the High Holidays through Operation Isaiah, the Conservative Movement's Kol Nidre food drive and the congregation's biggest annual food collection.
 
Community members attending High Holiday services on Zoom may donate directly to ALIVE! by printing out this form and mailing them a check. Using this form ensures that ALIVE! knows your contribution is in support of Operation Isaiah.
 
Community members attending services in person are asked to bring nonperishable foods (preferably in new, reusable bags) to the synagogue on Kol Nidre. Extra reusable bags are also welcome. Foods should be chosen from the list below.
