Oak Park Temple will hold a panel discussion Sunday, April 6 from 10:30 a.m. to noon about AVODAH, a Jewish service corps. The panel will feature former and current corps members.

"AVODAH is an organization devoted to ending poverty," said Oak Park Temple member Pam Strauss. "Participants live together and study Judaism and Jewish values."

Volunteers work with non-profit organizations in Chicago, New Orleans, New York City and Washington, D.C. that focus on the urban poor.

Two young women from Oak Park, Mia Salamone and Sarah Leitson, a 2007 Citizen Award recipient, will be participating in a year long service endeavor with AVODAH beginning later this year.
