Thanksgiving Community Event Will Encourage Sandy Relief Donations

Residents from several religious organizations to gather Tuesday.

Montville residents from many faiths will gather Tuesday to celebrate Thanksgiving and to give back to those who lost belongings after Superstorm Sandy.

The annual Interfaith Thanksgiving Service will be hosted by the Pine Brook Jewish Center on Tuesday at 7:30 p.m. Congregants and parishioners from the Jewish Center, Montville Reformed Church, Montville United Methodist Church, St. Pius X Roman Catholic Church and Transfiguration Episcopal Church have been joining together for the event for the past several years.

"We ask people to bring non-perishable items for the Montville Kiwanis Food Pantry and this year's collection will go for Hurricane Sandy relief," Pine Brook Jewish Center Rabbi Mark Finkel said.

The whole community is invited to attend the event. Refreshments will be served and the public will have an opportunity to learn more about the Torah scrolls, rescued from the Holocaust, housed at the Pine Brook Jewish Center.
