Yesterday, we took teaching about Matanot L'evyonim to a different level. We held a homelessness symposium to examine homelessness and poverty in America. We hosted multiple schools from around the tri-state area, so that they could join in and learn about this important issue.
The event was organized by students at the Yeshivah of Flatbush. Students say that their Panim trip to Washington, D.C. where they met and spoke to homeless people, inspired them to organize the symposium.
