Great activity for you and the kids, even the youngest in your family.
We bake casseroles for the shelter operated by So Others Might Eat (SOME).
Baking a casserole can be pretty easy for many TI members, but we make it even easier: we give you the recipe! If you think you can ﬁre up your oven, even if only once during the year, then please volunteer.
Opened as a small soup kitchen in 1970, with the help of volunteers SOME now provides a nourishing, hot breakfast and lunch every day of the year.
Or you can bring frozen casseroles to the Rubin house on the Tuesdays listed above.
Recipe: Any casserole is acceptable, Macaroni and Cheese, Tuna Noodle, etc.
Tuna Noodle Casserole
Cook 1 lb egg noodles
Place in a disposable 'lasagna' sized pan along with 3 cans of cream of mushroom soup (without water), 4 cans of tuna, and 1 pkg of frozen peas
Sprinkle bread crumbs on top
Bake 350° for 1/2 hour
Cover securely; preferably freeze before delivery
Help support those who are hungry by joining us as we drive a soup-and-sandwich van one Sunday a month, serving dinner to homeless men and women on the streets of downtown Washington, in partnership with Martha’s Table.
Cooking for a crowd is seldom as appreciated as when two TI families cook and help serve dinner to 25 women living in a shelter at the Luther Place church’s “N Street Village”. With your help just one Sunday a year this dinner becomes a way to get to know others from TI and do a Mitzvah at the same time.
For at least twelve years, adults and teenagers from TI and Shepherd Park have tutored students from our local public elementary school. Each tutor is paired with a young (grade 2-6) student for the school year. The pair meet for one hour each week at the synagogue to read, practice math skills, or review homework. The weekly hour can make a tremendous difference in the academic performance of participating students by boosting their self-conﬁdence and strengthening skills learned in school - a very high rate of return on volunteer service.
