Temple Beth Israel celebrated Sukkot, the weeklong holiday commemorating the fall harvest, with its annual food drive.

This year’s harvest was fruitful: Members gathered enough food to fill 100 Publix-donated bags that were given to All Faiths Food Bank.

The congregation’s Social Action Committee, led by Chairwoman and board Vice President Kathy Brooks, organized the collection.

The temple kicks off its food drive every year on Rosh Hashanah.

“It’s always the right time to help others, but with the High Holy Days, especially, we turn our focus to those in need,” Brooks said.
