The Marion & Aaron Gural JCC is proud to announce the creation of their new Sustenance Center. This new social services hub will house the Rina Shkolnik Kosher Food Pantry, a new clothing pantry, social services, computer stations and so much more! Look for our grand opening in late Fall. Thank you to our dear friends at UJA-Federation of New York for making this dream a reality! If you would like to serve on one of the many committees associated with the Sustenance Center, please contact Stacey Feldman at 516-569-6733 or

The Rina Shkolnik Kosher Food Pantry is a joint initiative of UJA-Federation of New York and is supported by the Community Chest South Shore and the Inwood Charities Fund.

The pantry assists individuals and families by providing nutritious non-perishable food packages consisting of tuna fish, pasta, peanut butter, canned fruits and vegetables, breakfast cereal and much more. We also provide toiletries such as shampoo, deodorant, tooth brushes and toothpaste and diapers.

There are many ways you can help. We accept kosher non-perishable food products, toiletries, cleaning products and paper goods. You may also make a monetary contribution. We are always seeking a team of dedicated volunteers to assist in sorting, organizing, packaging and delivering food to those in need who cannot come into the pantry. We are also looking for volunteers to organize a food drive at their school, synagogue, club or place of employment.

Please contact the Rina Shkolnik Kosher Food Pantry at 516-295-5678 for ways to get involved.
