It gives me great pleasure to write a few words in support of Meir Panim.
Our Rabbis tell us “hearing about an item, a project, is nothing in comparison to actually seeing that item, that project, in action.” During a recent National Council of Young Israel Rabbinic visit to Israel, our Rabbis had the opportunity to “see” Meir Panim in “action.”
We joined Meir Panim for lunch at their location in Kiryat Arba; we spoke to the members of the community – to whom this hot lunch was perhaps their only meal for the day. We watched as Meir Panim distributed sandwiches to school children in Chevron.
Meir Panim offers its services to all Jews of all ages in all locations. The need is great and their services are very important. Your participation can make the difference in whether a needy Jew will have a lunch meal.
