Photos and video: Temple Israel Thanksgiving Dinner For Those In Need

A Temple Israel holiday tradition continued last week as congregation staff and volunteers mobilized to prepare, pack and distribute 500 Thanksgiving meals to homeless shelters, schools, early childhood development centers and independent living facilities around the St. Louis area.

The “TI Thanksgiving Dinner for Those In Need” provides meals to people who might not otherwise be able to enjoy a turkey dinner with all the trimmings. All photos: Bill Motchan
