Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Greater Mercer County (JFCS) has been operating the Yvette Sarah Clayman Community Food Pantry since 1999. The Pantry is choice-based and allows clients to shop for their food instead of picking up a prepared bag. This follows our philosophy of empowering clients to care effectively for themselves and others. It is open to people of all denominations in Mercer County.
Description: This masterwork of American immigrant literature is set in the 1920s on the Lower East Side of Manhattan and tells the story of Sara Smolinsky, the youngest daughter of an Orthodox rabbi, who rebels against her father’s rigid conception of Jewish womanhood. Sarah’s struggle towards independence and self-fulfillment resonates with a passion all can share. Bread Givers is an essential historical work with enduring relevance. A Kosher lunch will be provided by Greenwood House and there is a requested donation of $5.00 per person.
