Dear Friends- 

Please join us this Tisha Bav not just by fasting, but following the advice of the prophet Isaiah, and many great rabbis through the ages, and taking the few dollars saved from abstaining from food, and donating them to Fast for Feast for hunger relief. Your fast will thereby be transformed into a feast for our brothers and sisters in Israel, and support the work of Miriam's Kitchen right here in our community.

About Miriam's Kitchen: When Miriam's Kitchen was founded in 1983, we served only breakfast. After seeing the same individuals in our dining room year after year, we recognized that serving meals was not enough. Today, from meals to housing, Miriam's Kitchen plays a critical role in the fight to end chronic homelessness in DC. We help our guests increase income, improve health, and obtain housing. Our advocacy work addresses root causes, and pushes forward city-wide resources and solutions to ensure instances of homelessness are rare, brief and non-recurring.     

Wishing you an Easy Fast,

The Rosh Pina Vaad
