More than 700 synagogues throughout the United States are asking their congregants to donate food money they saved by fasting on Yom Kippur to Mazon: A Jewish Response to Hunger. Last year, some 50,000 Jews participated in these Yom Kippur efforts, according to Mazon, which provides grants to food banks and other programs serving the hungry in the United States, Israel and poor countries worldwide.
