The ceramic bowls were created by Howard High students, teachers and families. The soup comes from teachers, parents and other members of the community. Proceeds will go to Grassroots, Howard County's 24-hour crisis center and homeless shelter.

Sermon classes

Rabbi Martin Siegel, rabbi emeritus of the Columbia Jewish Congregation, will offer three classes on the Sermon on the Mount, seen in a Jewish context using traditional Jewish methods of interpretation.
