St. Paul and St. Andrew is home to four churches and a large synagogue, Congregation B’nai Jeshuruni; this century-old building also houses New York’s largest emergency food program, the West Side Campaign Against Hunger; a shelter for homeless women; and a large tutoring program. One of the kitchens provides Meals-On-Wheels for Upper West Side seniors.
