Serving the Austin community since 1998, Mobile Loaves & Fishes provides food and clothing and promotes dignity to our homeless brothers and sisters in need. Temple Beth Shalom members contribute to the organization both with financial contributions and through volunteering: delivering meals, helping to build a micro-home at their Community First Village, and more. Working with Mobile Loaves & Fishes has also been a very popular B’nai Mitzvah project.

Temple Beth Shalom will be raising much needed funds for Mobile Loaves & Fishes during the High Holy Days. We encourage you to consider donating the value of the meals you miss during your Yom Kippur fast to this organization. Contribution envelopes will be available at TBS during the holidays, or you can contribute online at www.mlf.org/tbs.
