Mia’s mom commented, “Souper Tuesday allowed the parents and children to connect with older people. The children knocked and were received with a smile and gratitude, and that is the greatest gift.” (Credit: JFS MW)

On December 1, there was a Giving Tuesday, Souper Tuesday event in which Chabad at Short Hills and Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest partnered with Jewish Family Service of MetroWest to prepare soup and challah to be delivered to seniors who are clients of JFS MetroWest. About 60 volunteers came out to cook, bake and deliver packages to over 100 seniors in the MetroWest community. The event was the brainchild of Taryn Berelowitz, a Livingston resident and VP on the women’s philanthropy board at the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest.
