About the Cause

Sholom has been providing housing and services to seniors throughout the Upper Midwest for over 100 years. Sholom’s history dates back nearly 100 years. On June 14, 1908, the Jewish Home for the Aged of St. Paul opened at 75 Wilkin Street, thanks to the perseverance and dedication of a group of Jewish women. Today that “Home” is one of eight senior care facilities operated by Sholom.

Your participation in Food for Your Soul will help provide the "extras" for more than 1,000 residents, tenants, and clients served daily by Sholom.

The Sholom Auxiliary has been supporting the needs of Sholom that help to make it feel like home. The Sholom Auxiliary held the Sholom Ball (and its successor, the Sholom Shebang) for many years but made the decision in 2010 to try something new that would be a fun- and fund-raising event. Thus, Food for Your Soul was born from a similar event done by Boston's Jewish Community Day School. In its first year, Food for Your Soul far surpassed any expectations by selling out every available seat in every house (and then some!) and grossing over $75,000 to support Sholom. Our goal is to increase that dollar figure - as well as the number of people who participate - each year!
