Help us convert every dollar into seven pounds of food for those in need in the Mid-south. As we fast on Yom Kippur, we feast on making food possible for Memphians who are hungry every day. Please donate to Temple Israel’s High Holy Days Food drive by sending checks to Temple, payable to Rabbi Greenstein’s discretionary fund (write Food Drive in the memo section). All funds will be given to the Mid-South Food Bank, MIFA, and MAZON: The Jewish Response to Hunger. An envelope will also be enclosed in the Voice for your convenience, or you can donate here.
