Zehava and Karyn—Feeding the Neighbors
Delivering Food Packages to Needy Families in Jerusalem
Karyn Gellman resides in Baka, one of Jerusalem’s most affluent neighborhoods. When Karyn and her friend Zehava Taub (who has since moved) learned from the nearby school that there were neighbors who struggled to put food on the table, they wanted to help.
The two women approached other families who agreed to volunteer as well as provide food and additional basic items on a monthly basis, and the program was born. Today, many families receive this simple but important boost, which is enhanced at holiday time with supermarket scrip we have purchased on their behalf.
