Tribe for Men Winter Interfaith Shelter Dinner 2022
Feb 16 @ 5:00 pm – 7:30 pm

Join your fellow Tribesmen for our yearly mitzvah of serving over 50 homeless men a hearty dinner at a local shelter in San Francisco. This is a special night, where giving a full plate of food allows us to pray with our feet (volunteers will not be serving the food this year). And, once we have fed the hungry, as our Tribe-tradition goes, we will then convene for our annual no-host dinner tradition of our own (details given upon online registration)
