“I chose Leket because I had gleaned with them once before when I was staffing an Israel trip 3 years ago. I think the work that they do is super important. Environmental issues and especially food justice — or more accurately, injustice — issues are two of my big passions, and Leket focuses on both. The best part of the experience was getting to step outside the beit midrash and be outside working the Land we are studying about all the time. Of course, it was also great to do a double mitzvah in my opinion: save food that would otherwise have been wasted, and give food to those who are hungry.”
