Jewish tradition teaches that we must give back to our communities, help those in need, and strive to make the world a better place. Engaging in volunteerism and tikkun olam is an expression of our highest Jewish values and it is a way of nourishing and satisfying our souls. If that's not enough to motivate us, consider this: Rabbi Ron Segal is turning 50 years old on Sunday, March 9th, and the greatest gift you could give to him is to join him in this fantastic volunteer opportunity!
The 30th annual Hunger Walk/Run will take place on Sunday, March 9 at Turner Field. Registration starts at Noon with the Walk/Run starting at 2:00pm. Join the Sinai Striders, co-chairs Shelly Satisky & Laila Berland, and the Segal family as we stomp out hunger! Click here to register or donate to the cause.
