“How do I feel about what we are doing with this soup kitchen? Taking a few dollars here and there and creating a half a million dollars’ worth of hot meals and food staples for poor students and families. The Torah proscribes a special tithe for the poor, food is given to the poor, the stranger, the orphan, the widow for them to eat and become satiated. We then declare that we fulfilled everything that was incumbent on us, which the tradition tells us expresses that that we are full of joy as we fill others with joy! That is how I feel! “

Yakov Ostrovsky, Head of the Kitchen, Jerusalem
