HUNGER: A Global Problem - A Local Challenge - What is Our Responsibility?
1.4 million New Yorkers live in homes without enough to eat. Worldwide, there are over 1 billion people who are hungry.
What are the immediate challenges both locally and around the globe? What are the answers, from local soup kitchens and food pantries to long-term sustainable solutions?
Representatives of organizations that are working to address this major social problem will present information about their work and teach us what can be done about it. What can we do ourselves and how can we formulate an action plan as a congregation?
It is not your duty to complete the task, but nor are you free to desist from it. (Rabbi Tarfon, Pirke Avot, 2:21)
