Erin Dreyfuss will coordinate a time for you to pick up food from OT to drive to ECHO at 7205 Old Keene Mill Road, Springfield. ECHO is open daily 9:30am-12:30pm and Tuesday and Thursday evenings 7:00-9:00pm. Sign up below to volunteer.

While you're here, pick up glow sticks for Neilah! Every year at Neilah, we hand out glow sticks for Havdalah as Yom Kippur ends. This year, to help you observe at home, you can pick up glow sticks from OT. Join us for Neilah on the livestream at olamtikvah.org/livestream Monday, September 28 from 5:45-approximately 7:50pm. If you are attending Neilah in person, glow sticks will be distributed at the service.
