As a member of Congregations for the Homeless, which strives to mitigate the pain of homelessness by providing meals and basic needs, HNT aspires to provide at least one monthly meal for 80 men during the colder months.
This is a great activity for families, friends, your book group, or chavurah, and HNT will provide organizational support. It’s all done potluck-style with food you can buy or make at home. You can drop off your food or stay to help serve and talk with the residents. You choose the date that works for your group. Please email ShelterMeals@h-nt.org to volunteer to organize a group of friends to take a meal.
For this special meal we are teaming up with Humanize Homelessness for their ‘Celebrate with your Neighbor’ series, bringing the joy of Purim to the men at the shelter. HNT is one of the diverse cultural organizations they partner with to celebrate events of importance to the various cultures with people and families experiencing homelessness. Rabbi Rosenbaum will be there to teach about Purim, and we hope to have a few talented bakers sign up to make hamentashen.
