The faces of hunger in America are both familiar and hidden from view, yet they are all too real and far too many.
Thanks to the efforts of local Rabbi Josh Ratner, MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger travelling exhibit of “This Is Hunger”, is coming to our local community. This powerful community engagement program that will encourage individuals to embark on a journey—one that that will challenge their beliefs about who in America struggles with hunger and why, and empower them to take action.
From Sunday, May 7th through Wednesday, May 10 this exhibit, which includes a 53-foot-long double expandable trailer, will be located at Congregation Mishkan Israel, 785 Ridge Road in Hamden. Visitors to this exhibit will be taken on a virtual and interactive journey and meet virtually real people struggling with hunger. They will see the faces of hunger, hear their stories and learn about this silent but prevalent issue. Participants will also be invited to engage in activities and experiences that will deepen their awareness about the complexities of being hungry.
