“The Box” – Fundraiser for the Synagogue

“I cannot believe the difference in the quality of this organic produce compared to the organic produce that is trucked in to any store anywhere. I was ecstatic over my first box which contained a plethora of beautiful fresh crisp veggies of many sorts. I am a devoted Maharishi Vedic City CSA member and I continue with that all four seasons, but this is an incredible addition. AND it contains local items in the region whenever possible, like some incredible carrots and radishes, best I ever had, this past week.  I will try the fruit box in the future also. And as an added bonus I can buy by the week and do whatever suits me that week. And it is incredible value for the money!” — Sheila Ross

The Synagogue has been offered an extremely generous and valuable opportunity to make a bit of money when you sign up to receive a box of organic produce once or twice a week. You must tell them you are doing this for the Synagogue. Please tell your friends, Jewish or not, that they can participate.
