DEAR BROTHER DOVID & FRIENDS........ 

Today was a distinct pleasure having you & your group honor my homeless friends with your presence.  This particular day was more special than many, and I attribute this primarily to your collective kavanah.  I am a constant....and you brought compounded satisfaction.  The food was surely tasty...but I believe the real nourishment is in the spiritual sustenance we all place within each item we serve.
 

I love watching your sweet children repeat this mitzvah....and what you instill in them.....as well in the young men & women....is an authentic gift to my homeless 'family'.
 

I kvelled viewing the friendly respect your group showed our denizens of the dumpsters.  If anything helps re-humanize these folks, it is providing kind 'normal' relations.  Thank you for this gift to those who are important to me...part of my extended 'family'.........
 

With gratitude,
 

JAY....AKA:  The EGGMAN
