Lederman “trash can-diving” story is on the money

I wanted to tell you how much I enjoyed Amy Hirshberg Lederman’s article, “Epiphany of small change inspires big changes” (AJP, 6/18/10). As a homeless advocate, I especially appreciate it. At Temple Emanu-El during Operation Deep Freeze I encourage meal providers to plan a meal as if they were serving friends at their own home for Shabbat. Tonight we are bringing dinner to 110 men at Primavera. Come to think of it, the salad could use cherry tomatoes. Thanks for the great article and I’m off to Trader Joe’s.
