Connect with community and renew your spirit.


The High Holy Day season is a time for introspection and renewal.
As we celebrate the New Year, we reflect on our lives and rededicate ourselves to living with goodness and purpose. While this year will still be different, we look forward to joining together and
strengthening one another during these Days of Awe.

FOOD DRIVE AND INTERFAITH MINI-WALK FOR HUNGER

The mitzvah of tzedakah, righteous giving, is a core value of our tradition and culture at Temple Beth David. The prophet Isaiah, read on Yom Kippur, spoke of fasting as a reminder to do good and share our bread with the hungry. In lieu of our NAWDTY Food Drive, please consider making a tzedakah contribution to any of the following organizations:

Westwood Food Pantry

The Greater Boston Food Bank

Jewish Family & Children’s Services - Support Family Table (please put Temple Beth David, Westwood in the gift message box)

Interfaith Mini-Walk for Hunger

You may also bring whole grain pasta or canned salmon for Family Table or individually wrapped breakfast items and travel-sized toiletries for Father Bill's and Mainspring Shelter.
