6:45 PM - 7:30 PM
MAZON Hunger Truck Bagel Brunch
Saturday, Jan 21
12:00 PM - 12:30 PM
Please join us at The Temple on Saturday, January 21st at 12:00pm to enjoy a bagel lunch discussing the stereotypes of Hunger before experiencing the installation of MAZON On Wheels. MAZON which means “food” in Hebrew, is the first national organization to rally the American Jewish community around the issue of hunger, and remains the only national Jewish organization dedicated exclusively to that same cause. When participants enter the parked vehicle, they’ll embark on a journey that will challenge their beliefs about who in America struggles. This interactive experience on wheels will illuminate the very real and preventable existence of hunger in America, encourage us to raise our voices on behalf of the 42.2 million Americans who struggle with hunger every day, and ignite our community’s commitment to end hunger once and for all.
MAZON On Wheels will be on the road for ten months with plans to stop in and around Greater Los Angeles, Phoenix, Tucson, Dallas, Atlanta, Miami, Washington DC, Baltimore, Philadelphia, New York and the Tri-State Area, Boston, Cleveland, Chicago, St. Louis, Kansas City, the San Francisco Bay Area, and Detroit. The truck will be parked at Peachtree Christian Church across the street.
Over lunch, we will enjoy a discussion with Jillian Madden and Nicole Mullen from Midtown Assistance Center, Atlanta’s lead organization providing emergency assistance to low income working Atlantans to help prevent homelessness and hunger during periods of crisis.
We invite you to join us for Shabbat morning services beforehand beginning at 10:30am in the Chapel.
To RSVP, please contact Joya Schmidt by January 18th at 404-873-1731 or email@example.com .

The Temple’s Kulanu group received this honor. We have 50 tickets! To maximize their distribution we are offering two tickets to each Temple member.
We selected a film that was highly acclaimed by 4 folks on the review panel. AND- it only has one showing- Lefont Theatre in Sandy Springs, Sunday, February 5th at 11:00 am. This showing will be nearly impossible to snag tickets for.

Movie: Germans & Jews
ABOUT THE FIM
Germans & Jews- Germany’s torturous postwar reckoning and reconciliation, and eventual transformation are seen through a series of dialogues with everyday citizens who offer an eye opening cross-section of generational attitudes on whether today’s Germany represents a lasting or temporary Jewish Utopia.
