Miracle Menorah

Temple Shaari Emeth has a holiday tradition of putting a “Miracle Menorah” in the temple lobby covered with paper mittens so our congregants can do the great mitzvah of helping children from at risk families receive perhaps their only gifts for the holiday season.

This year TSE is proud to sponsor the Raine FoundationJewish Family & Children’s Service, and the Lion of Judah Faith Center (located in Trenton)

The Raine Foundation mittens are designated with labels of an individual child and her/his/their desired gift. 

Jewish Family & Children’s Service has requested all gift cards (Target, Walmart, Kohls, Amex, etc.) so the mittens are designated with a $25.00 minimum.

Lion Of Judah has requested toys for the age range of tots to age 15.  There will be a separate box set up in the lobby for these toys.

We are also offering on-line donations for Jewish Family & Children’s Service for those individuals who are not coming into the Temple.

Please note the following holiday deadlines:

All Jewish Family & Children’s Service gift cards must be returned to the Temple Office no later than Sunday, November 19th so JF&CS can distribute them in time for Chanukah.  All on-line donations to JF&CS must be completed by November 19th as well.

All Raine Foundation toys (unwrapped with mitten label securely attached) must be placed under the Menorah in the Temple lobby no later than Sunday, November 19th.  This will enable Raine to pick them up and distribute them according to their deadline.

All Lion of Judah toys (unwrapped) should be placed in the separate box (labelled Lion of Judah) which will be in the lobby.  All Lion of Judah toys must be placed in the box by December 13th.

Thank you so much for your generous support in making this holiday season a happy one for an at-risk child!
