Interfaith Hospitality Network

What is it? -- Interfaith Hospitality Network of Greater Cincinnati (IHN) provides shelter and compassion for homeless families. 

How does Wise Temple Help? -- Wise Temple is one of many local congregations that provides families a safe place to stay while IHN helps them to find permanent housing and financial stability.  Without congregations like Wise Temple, it would be difficult for some families to stay together.

IHN at Wise Temple: A Personal Look

To see it is to understand it. For 27 years, Wise Temple has hosted families from the Interfaith Hospitality Network (IHN). Yet, if you’ve never seen it in action, it may be hard to understand this powerful mitzvah.
In this short video, you’ll see our last hosting in action and hear from longstanding volunteers and from guests we serve. This video will help you visualize how you can help, will dispel any misconceptions, and will inspire you to participate.

How can YOU help? -- Volunteers work together to provide food, fun, and a comfortable, home-like environment for families to enjoy during their stay here at Wise Temple. This is the perfect opportunity for families with children of all ages to join in a Wise Temple social action project! Newborn babies to grandparents make the best volunteers! 

You are the most important part of this program! 
Be a part of this incredible, life-changing mitzvah!
