Staff and volunteers received many expressions of gratitude from recipients, including this note from an older adult living in the Metrowest area:

“I am embarrassed to say that I am enjoying a cup of tea and a piece of delicious Honey Cake from my box! I just couldn’t wait. One bite of the cake and I am transported to my Bubbas kitchen years ago! Every thing in the box looks yummy, but I will wait til Rosh Hashanah to eat them! Thank you so much for this gift!! As a single handicapped senior I really appreciate it!! Be well and I hope you and yours have a happy healthy new year!! Thanks again!”

Wishing you all a Happy Rosh Hashanah! | L’shanah Tovah
