We always appreciate it when families, schools, businesses and organizations conduct food drives for our Pantry. Students affiliated with Chabad on Campus, Rohr Center for Jewish Life at Washington University collected an enormous amount of non-perishable food and had some fun doing it.
The food was displayed as a Can Menorah in the Olin Library. The sign next to the Menorah said: â€œCelebrate the Season of Giving This Menorah display, constructed out of donated cans of food, will be presented to the Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry. Every month, the food pantry serves over 7,000 people — of all faiths and backgrounds — who would otherwise go hungry. For more information and to donate visit their website at www.jfcs-stl.org.
The Chabad Student Association thanks the following groups for their contributions: Alpha Epsilon Phi | Alpha Epsilon Pi | Alpha Phi | Kappa Delta | Kappa Kappa Gamma | Pi Beta Phi | Sigma Alpha Epsilon | Theta Xi | Zeta Beta Tauâ€
Checkout this inspiring video featuring our Executive Director, Louis Albert which highlights the personal story of one of the clients in our financial assistance program. This video was featured at the Jewish Federation’s Women in Philanthropy’s recent Soul to Sole event. 650 women attended an elegant, fun, and inspiring event featuring Jane Weitzman, former CEO of Stuart Weitzman shoes, visionary leader, and philanthropist of Jewish causes. People were so moved by this video and the speech given after.
Our chaplains, Rabbi Micah Buck-Yael and Rabbi Tracy Nathan, prepare to deliver Hanukkah gift bags from Jewish Federation Women’s Philanthropy to 200 Jewish residents of skilled and assisted living facilities.
