Annual Food Drive and Ongoing Hunger Relief Efforts:

BYBS members begin the Jewish New Year with an annual food drive. The food collected goes to local food pantries and The Ark’s kosher food pantry. The blue barrel in our entryway lets members drop off donations for distribution to local agencies on a regular basis. BYBS is a Mazon Partner Congregation.

South Suburban PADS (Public Action to Deliver Shelter):

Our members, from b’nei mitzvah students with their parents through our most senior members work together once a month to serve the homeless population in our midst. A choice of volunteer opportunities is available, from purchasing or cooking food, serving meals, setting up and manning the overnight shelter.

Cancer Support Center, Annual Walk of Hope:

BYBS fields a team of walkers for this community-wide event to raise funds and awareness for the Canter Support Center.

Hanukkah Toy Drive:

School families and the larger congregation donate toys for distribution to needy families through our local JUF social services office.

Spaghetti Dinner and Dessert Auction:

School families organize and run this event for the entire congregation. Delicious desserts are auctioned at a premium, with funds donated to a charity chosen by our school.

Blood Drives:

BYBS organizes and hosts blood drives several times throughout the year.

Hurricane Relief - More Help is Needed

Temple Beth Shalom in San Juan Puerto Rico experienced considerable flooding in their building during Hurricane Maria. Many congregants are also having difficulties and can use our help. we're sure it would be very much appreciated.
The URJ's Camp Newman was destroyed by the fires in Sonoma County, California. There also are about 5 congregations in the area. As soon as we learn of efforts to help, we will let you know.

Thank you for all your help to-date. These disasters have affected many of our fellow congregations and their members.

The Jewish Federation of Metropolitan Chicago is collecting funds for victims of hurricanes Harvey, Irma and Maria.
Go to Hurricane to see how you can help.
