The July 31, 2015 issue of the J Weekly featured B’nai Emunah, one of the partners in the Southside Jewish Collaborative’s Tikkun Olam project of feeding the hungry.
The lunch bag preparation work that is featured in the J Weekly’s article occurs every month after the “Lunch and Learn” program. We also make lunch bags every other month on the first Sunday for family participation. The Collaborative Tikkun Olam Committee is chaired by Lori Ganz of Beth Israel Judea with members Bonnie Lindauer and Sharon Bleviss of B’nai Emunah; Steve Roditti of Beth Israel Judea; Al Scion and Ruth Maginnis of Or Shalom, and Gerry Spindel of Ner Tamid. Kudos to all the volunteers who have helped make sandwiches and donated funds or jars of peanut butter, jam, and bread — especially Flori Green who donates nearly all the bread.
We also want to thank Shais St. Martin who records the financial donations and keeps the accounting. Keep the donations coming in for this project!
