Last week, 15 members of Congregation Kol HaNeshamah of Englewood prepared and served dinner at Ronald McDonald House in New York City to families with a child  battling pediatric cancer. The facility provides free housing, meals, and support to families with children undergoing treatment for serious illnesses. The services it provides allow families from across the nation and around the world to stay together and receive support during a difficult time in their lives. The tikkun olam project, led by Kol HaNeshamah congregant Debbie Berman with the participation of the Kol HaNeshamah community, will become an annual event.
