The Conservative Synagogue Sponsors Share The Pie--A Fundraiser To Benefit Homes With Hope
Westport, Connecticut, November 5, 2012—For more than ten consecutive seasons, The Conservative Synagogue (TCS), in cooperation with Homes with Hope, are kicking off their annual program, Share the Pie. Pies can be purchased for families, friends, businesses as well as donated to local area shelters for those in need. The proceeds from this community fundraiser directly benefit Homes with Hope. Formerly known as the Interfaith Housing Association of Westport & Weston, Homes with Hope provides facilities and supportive services to the homeless people in our area to enable them to achieve an independent and self-sufficient life.
“We view Share the Pie as an opportunity to perform mitzvot (religious obligations) for those in need within our community and throughout the world,” said Rabbi Jeremy Wiederhorn of The Conservative Synagogue and President of the Interfaith Clergy Association. “The funds raised will not only support Homes with Hope on a local level, but the global efforts of our Social Action Committee as well. This year, following Hurricane Sandy, our synagogue community is especially attentive as we try to reach out to those who are suffering throughout the Tri-State area. Through Share the Pie, we hope that we can make this Thanksgiving a little easier for those who have been struggling," Rabbi Wiederhorn added.
Pies are kosher and provided by Fairway and Zucker Bakers and include pecan, pumpkin, and apple varieties. You can purchase a pie for $20. Orders can be made now through November 12th online at WWW.SHARETHEPIE.NET, by fax 203-454-8888, by phone 203-454-4673 or by sending a check made out to Share the Pie/TCS, 30 Hillspoint Road, Westport, CT 06880.
The pies are available to be picked up on Tuesday, November 20th (between 9:00am and 7:00pm) at The Conservative Synagogue, 30 Hillspoint Road, Westport, Connecticut. For more information on this program, please call The Conservative Synagogue office at 203-454-4673.
