Yazidis & Operation Ezra volunteers after picking the potatoes

Megan Sodomsky has been an ardent volunteer with Operation Ezra for two years now. She says it was when she converted three years ago to marry Matthew Sodomsky that she began to understand the importance of “tikkun olam” - a key goal of Operation Ezra.
As a result, Megan persuaded her father, farmer Roy Tufford, to set aside a section of his farm, so that Yazidis could grow and harvest potatoes - which they did on Sunday, Oct. 7, bringing in over 600 lbs. that will be distributed among Yazidi families that have all been sponsored by Operation Ezra since its inception three years ago.
