Judaism has always been a part of my life. It has shaped and molded my values and beliefs. It has taught me humility and empathy for everyone and everything around me. And it has empowered me and it's defeated me. The only thing Judaism will not do to me is leave me.

Going on a service trip was bittersweet at first - I wanted to go, but I didn’t actually want to go. I was new to service, in a new environment, with people I barely knew. But by the end of the trip, I knew exactly why I had gone and exactly why I wanted to go again. It was a different environment, doing something I had never done before.

Fr. Mychal Judge, OFM would often say "What you receive as a gift, give as a gift," and so it has been one of the great blessings of my career in campus ministry to bring students to Saint Francis Inn Ministries in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia. I first encountered the Inn as a student myself, on my first service trip, and over the years I have learned that, while there are many good places that feed the hungry and homeless, there is no place like Saint Francis Inn.

Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week is a national effort with an international focus. Days before Thanksgiving, Hunger and Homelessness Awareness Week (HHAW) is an opportunity to remind us what we’re thankful for, while calling to mind those, who in our global society, are experiencing hunger and homelessness. Defined as a social movement, HHAW is a platform where everyone involved can play a part in highlighting injustices, and put pressure on lawmakers to make positive change that will unite our society.
