Contact Patty Torcellini

Temple Beth El is hosting the first of four nights of Abraham's Tent, part of Roof Above's Room in the Inn. Jews and Muslims are invited to come together to provide food, shelter, and care for neighbors in need. Just as Abraham’s tent was open on all sides to welcome friends and strangers passing by his desert-dwelling, the Muslim and Jewish communities want our neighbors in Charlotte to feel that spirit of welcome. We invite all community members to join us in providing this place of hospitality on the Queen's Campus.

We need your help providing food and your time. Visitors sleep overnight and get a hot meal for dinner and for breakfast. We supply goody bags for them to take home as well as a bagged lunch, socks, hats, and coats for the winter. There are opportunities to bring food and items or to volunteer your time.
