The Thanksgiving Challenge: Learning about Hunger

Rabbi Lenny Gordon and his synagogue’s teenage students engaged in learning to shop for Thanksgiving as though limited to a food stamp budget. The challenge extended the synagogue’s participation in stocking local food pantries by further educating participants about what it means to leave a meal without being sated and how the prophetic tradition informs contemporary human needs. In a short video prepared for Religion and Ethics NewsWeekly, a source for cutting-edge coverage and analysis of events in the religious world, Gordon discusses the hunger project and its impact on youth participants.
