Midnight Run 2021

Wednesday, November 10, 2021 in-person in NYC 

Every year, our Midnight Run is Bet Torah’s way of helping the homeless in Manhattan. The night before Veterans Day*, we travel by bus at night into the city to deliver much-needed food and clothing to those who are less fortunate. The homeless look forward to our support every year.

Our Run offers teens the opportunity to have real interaction with the homeless. The homeless look forward to the distraction from their present situations, and teens can make a difference for a night in their lives by treating them with respect and dignity.

Volunteer for the Run!

Bet Torah congregants in 11th and 12th grade can sign up to attend the Run. There are limited spaces, first come, first serve. Our Covid protocols will include this limited number of teens on the bus, social distancing, and masking even outdoors when we interact with our clients.

We need help from younger teens as well! Starting at 5:30, we will be making sandwiches and packing up our supplies. Teens who don’t go into NYC for the Run will stay at Bet Torah for an outdoor pizza party with Robin Wald, and go home at 8:30 p.m.

Adult Volunteers Needed!

  • Adult Chaperone for Midnight Run (age 25+, only) – join us on the bus to come to NYC
  • Adult SUV/Mini Van Driver (age 18+, post-high school) – follow bus with a van full of clothes, sleeping bags, and other supplies to allow for social distancing on the school bus.

Sign Up!
