JWT and SOVA Connection

This month, the Jewish Women’s Theatre celebrated the warm connections between Jewish life and food. Amid the laughter and poignancy of the performances of The Matzo Ball Diaries and the beauty of the Nourishing Tradition Art Show, our patrons did not forget that there are many in the Los Angeles area who do not have enough to eat.

JWT teamed up with Jewish Family Services SOVA Pantry to help out. We collected 332 pounds of food for SOVA along with some monetary donations from our generous guests!  SOVA is a Hebrew word that means “eat and be satisfied.” JWT hopes our contributions can help our neighbors reach this important goal.
