Life can get busy around our house with four kids between the ages of 6-13. In addition to school, our afternoons and weekends consist of my husband and I playing the role of Uber drivers for our kids’ sports, religious schools, play-dates and extra curricular activities. We LOVE the chaos and the busy life that comes with having four children. That said, there are times when I wish we could slow down just a bit, take a step back and a deep breath to appreciate it all, and do more to understand how other people outside our little bubble live.

The exhibit shed light on the profound prevalence of hunger in America. Did you know 1 in 8 Americans struggle with hunger? Nearly 6 million of our seniors are food insecure. Over 13 million children live with hunger every day.
The High Holy Days is a time to renew our commitment and raise our voices on behalf of the 42.2 million Americans who struggle with hunger every day.
