hunger walk run

On Sunday, March 10, CSI members participated in the 40th Annual Hunger Walk Run. Members Nancy Gorod and Ronnie & Howard Zandman walked together with Rabbi Helfand.

Rabbi Helfand reported that Shearith Israel raised $3,477 total. The Hunger Walk Run benefits a specific number of charities from which participants choose, as well as “broader, community-wide hunger relief efforts.” Shearith’s proceeds will go to the Jewish Federation of Greater Atlanta, which states on its website that “funds raised through the Hunger Walk Run helped support 14 organizations last year, including Kosher food programs, shelters and food distribution programs. TODA RABA (תודה רבה).” The money raised will help provide relief for the 1 in 12 neighbors facing hunger in Metro Atlanta and North Georgia. 

Nancy shared her experience: “I was happy to join the team and walk together with Rabbi Helfand and Rabbi Elizabeth Breit from B'nai Torah. Although attendance was lower than in previous years, there was a strong sense of community and festivities as the Atlanta Hunger Walk is celebrating its 40th year.”
