Support our Supporter, Rabbi Jacobson

We’ve heard through the Jewish grapevine that our good friend and advisor to Beth Shalom, Rabbi Jacobson, head of Chabad Lubavitch in Des Moines, and owner of Maccabee’s Glatt Kosher Deli, has lost some key donations he has counted on in past years.  This has resulted in a financial shortfall for his support efforts and to him personally. If you’d like to express appreciation for all the kindness and support he’s given our community over the years. please make a tax deductible donation to Judaic Resource Center of Iowa and send to 943 Cummins Parkway Des Moines 50312. Or simply donate in the envelope that accompanies the calendars and magazines they provide every year free of charge. Also, when you’re in Des Moines, visit Maccabee’s and enjoy their kosher vegan and vegetarian entrees, 1150 Polk Blvd. Des Moines 50311, 515-277-1718.
