Kol Rina participates in the Community Soup Kitchen which is comprised of five synagogues and one church which help feed a community of people who require meals on a weekly basis. Since we rotate turns serving, Kol Rina has participated about five times since we started volunteering for this great mitzvah about a year ago.
Individuals prepare hot meals at home and bring them to the Salem Seventh Day Adventist Church located at 10 S. Oraton Parkway East Orange, NJ. On average, about 60 people attend, men, women and children , to receive hearty, healthy food, camaraderie, a friendly greeting and service with a smile. But, no matter how much the guests get out of it, our volunteers gleam with the feeling of having done a wonderful mitzvah knowing that we’ve helped individuals less fortunate than ourselves.
The Next Volunteer Opportunities are:
Sunday, September 8, 2013 and Sunday, November 10, 2013
