The Northeast Jewish Center in Yonkers is in need of some serious community support after a fire ripped through the temple.
The fire broke out on July 18 around 11 a.m. in the electrical room of the temple and moved throughout the inside - causing extensive damage.
The temple is now without power and gas. 
A tent was set up in the parking lot with a generator – but it costs too much to maintain. 
They are now wondering how they are going to celebrate the Jewish New Year, which begins Sept. 25.
The temple is still working with ConEdison and their insurance company to see what solutions there are.
