March Mitzvah Meals

Mitzvah Meals are delicious, fully-cooked, homemade dinners prepared and packaged especially for you and then reheated in your oven. Order by phone or email and then pick up your Mitzvah Meal at the Temple on the dates and times listed below. Or if you are unable to drive to the Temple, a volunteer will deliver your Mitzvah Meal to you! It’s that simple. Temple Shomer Mitzvah Meals also make a mouth-watering mitzvah for a friend or family member that could use a little extra TLC.

Calling all volunteers! Men and women of Congregation Temple Shomer Emunim, we need your help. 

Sign up to help cook or deliver Mitzvah Meals by calling the office or emailing mkuehnle@templese.com.
