    Soup for Seniors—a Preschool Mitzvah

    Part of Our Mitzvah Corps Program

    When: Sunday, 11/17/2019 10:00 AM - 1:00 PM

    Where: Art Studio (Bldg D) Room D-117,

    Bring your preschool-aged child to make soup for seniors living in Alta Torre, the housing community for low-income seniors right next to the OFJCC. We will cook together and work with the young children to teach them the Jewish value of honoring the elderly. 

    The day will include making soup, cornbread and fruit salad together, as well as learning a song to sing to the seniors. The kids will also be able to help make fun decorations for the tables, afterwards we will serve the seniors lunch and enjoy lunch with them (the meal, though kosher-style, is not certified kosher. Please feel free to bring a meal with you to meet your dietary needs). 

    Italian Soup (with beef and vegetarian)
    Corn bread

    What to bring:
    For your safety and the safety of others please wear your hair up and or covered, wear closed-toed shoes, bring an apron if you want to keep your clothing clean and bring a refillable water bottle.
