The Townwide Fund Of Huntington Awards Grant To Temple Beth El
The Townwide Fund of Huntington has made a generous grant to Temple Beth El to help purchase a twin 1.5 gallon coffee brewer that will enable volunteer congregants to effectively serve high-volume batches of coffee from our current kitchen facilities, and will be integrated seamlessly into the soon-to-be newly renovated kitchen.

“This prestigious grant from The Townwide Fund of Huntington will not only add to our upcoming kitchen re-design, it also acknowledges the important efforts Temple Beth El makes in helping those less fortunate in the greater Huntington community,” explains Linda Braun, Temple Beth El President. “We are thrilled to be listed alongside other worthy Huntington community organizations helped by The Townwide Fund.”
Temple Beth El’s Social Action Committee routinely prepares cold and pre-cooked meals, healthy snacks and baked goods for the following Huntington-based programs:
- Hospice House (patients and families);
- Social Service Agencies, including Tri-CYA, Manor Field Family Center and Family Service League;
- Local Shelters such as Haven House, Bridges and Brentwood;
- Low Income Housing (Paumanok Village)
- Temple Beth El members and other local families and individuals in need, due to illness, medical procedures, financial stress or other deleterious conditions.
“Temple Beth El is committed to aiding the poor and feeding the disadvantaged, providing much needed help for Huntington residents, a mission which is also celebrated by The Townwide Fund,” states Rabbi Jeffrey Clopper. “We are very thankful to be recognized by The Townwide Fund of Huntington for their generous grant as we can continue to make a positive difference in our community.”
