March, 2021

Thank you to everyone who participate in any of our wonderful February Events. From our chef series to our Purim festivities, we had a lot of fun with food last month! While food is tied so heavily to Jewish life, we must always remember that millions of Americans struggle with hunger and food insecurity every year. We hope you'll join us for our program on March 4th with Mazon: A Jewish Response to Hunger to learn more about how we can help be part of the solution. (Details below)

For anyone who didn't get a chance to tune in, check out our YouTube page for videos of all our past online programs. Can't find the program you're looking for? Let us know and we'll send you the direct link.

We Hope You'll Join Us

Thursday, March 4th, 2021 - "This is Hunger" with Mazon
FREE - Any donations made will support the Food Bank of Northwest Louisiana
"This is Hunger" is a powerful, immersive digital video experience that explores who struggles with hunger in America and why."Until we recognize the profound prevalence of hunger here at home, we will never rally the political will to end it. From that core belief, 'This Is Hunger' was born." (Mazon)
