Community program of Tikkun Olam on food insecurity

An important Jewish value is helping those in need. With the assistance of our NextDOR students, we plan to make 150 bagged lunches for Light of Life Rescue Mission, a place where hope and healing meet for men, women, and families experiencing homelessness, poverty, or addiction.
