#Tzimmes: Join Me in Feeding the Needy

Naftali Hanau Masbia Tzimmes Gift

Hi, this is Naftali Hanau from growandbehold.com and I am asking you to please join me in helping Masbia feed the hungry. Masbia is a network of Kosher soup kitchens that serves 2 million meals a year to hungry men, women and children. Masbia needs our help to continue to feed those less fortunate. Donate now and with your tax deductible receipt, Masbia will include a collection of 40 Tzimmes recipes from some of the best known names in Jewish cooking, including my own. That’s for any donation, and every donation counts! For $1,000 you can help Masbia provide holiday meals for their clients, and here is what I will do for you if you make a $1,000 commitment for the New Year: not only will you receive a book of recipes, but I will personally send you a Tzimmes and Cholent Package from Grow and Behold.
