Mitzvah Project at The Temple
The Temple will celebrate the holiday by helping to fund and package food for hungry children in the Louisville community and around the world. At 6:30 p.m., volunteers will gather in the Heideman Auditorium for this project.
Each donation of $1.50 will feed six hungry children with Kids Against Hunger packages of highly nutritious, life-saving meals for starving children and malnourished children and their families in developing countries and the United States. The goal of the organization is for its meals to provide a stable nutritional base from which recipient families can move their families from starvation to self-sufficiency.

The Temple’s goal is packaging 5,000 meals for hungry children both here in Louisville and overseas.
Please RSVP to Rabbi David Ariel-Joel or Becky King at 423-1818.
