Each year Temple Sinai prepares and serves Christmas Day Dinner for the EOC Soup Kitchen at The Presbyterian New England Congregational Church on Circular Street.  Also included in our Christmas Day mitzvah is a dinner for twelve and other items that are given to Wellspring. Members can participate in the Christmas Day mitzvah by donating women’s slippers, gloves and socks, standard bottles of shampoo, conditioner, body wash and body lotion or umbrellas to be distributed at the Wellspring Safe House. Victims of domestic violence often have to leave their homes without even the basic necessities. When we hold this holiday event each year, we fondly remember our good friend, Glenn Star, who devoted endless time and energy to Saratoga’s EOC Soup Kitchen. For more info about cooking and serving Christmas Day, please contact Shawn Banner at Or click here to sign up. 

GOT SOCKS!!! Did you know that socks are the most needed, but least donated article of clothing in homeless shelters? The Torah Study Group has set up a wool sock drive (collection box at the Temple) to collect wool socks to give out during the Annual Christmas Day Dinner.
