A Meaningful MissionTomcheShabbos of Rockland County has spent over 25 years making sure that every family in the Monsey and New Square community has food for Shabbos andYomTov. And every week, children and teens just like you help make it happen. Each Wednesday, women and girls head to theTomcheShabbos warehouse to set up the stands and assemble the boxes for the Shabbos food packages that the men and boys will pack on Thursday. Over 450 families receive these packages filled with everything needed to make an abundant Shabbos: challos, grape juice, chicken, gefilte fish, eggs, fruits, vegetables, and canned goods.
