Kehillah Giving Back & the Importance of Matanot L'evyonim
The residents and staff of Lifemoves Mountain View were touched to receive a lovely meal and beautiful decorative paper flowers from members of the Kehillah community this past Sunday. Thank you to the Kehillah students, staff and parents who cooked and gave generously to help provide our houseless community members with a warm meal and beautiful decorations.
Kehillah would also like to take a moment to recognize those individuals that helped make this happen. It was no small task and had a terrific impact. A big thank you to Skyden and Timonie Hood, Maria Vicenty, Zachi and Yael Baharav, Mel Shapiro, Elena Chawla, Sarah Lesser and all the students who made paper flowers for contributing to the meal.

In honor of Purim and fulfilling the mitzvah to give gifts to the needy (matanot l’evyonim), you are invited to help provide a meal to the 120 families and individuals living at Lifemoves Mountain View, a Project Homekey Support Interim Housing Community.
In their words, “LifeMoves has the expertise to rapidly return our unhoused neighbors to stable homes, but a solution to homelessness requires all of us. We need your help to confront the homelessness crisis in our community and empower our clients to succeed.”
