“Don’t just study Torah, ‘Be Torah’ ”   Rabbinic proverb
For adults too, “Being Torah” means we are living embodiments of the  commandments: serving the community and working for causes that respect all people. In alliance with five faith communities, Da’at Elohim volunteers cook and serve nutritious meals to needy New Yorkers on the fifth Shabbat of the month.  With our host and partner, The Park Avenue Christian Church and Reverend Alvin Jackson, we present the Heschel-King Award for Interfaith Activism to one continuing the work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.  and Rabbi Abraham J. Heschel, both of blessed memory.
