Members of Temple Sharey Tefilo-Israel (TSTI) in South Orange rolled up their sleeves to participate in a community challah bake on February 7 in the kitchen at Community Food Bank of New Jersey, located in Hillside. The event, called “Kneading for Those in Need,” was sponsored by the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest and Central NJ to benefit community members and local kosher food pantries. TSTI is an active participant in anti-hunger initiatives in the area and is one of four houses of worship that support the Interfaith Food Pantry of the Oranges.
