Lipa Shmeltzer at Masbia

Lipa Shmeltzer was helping get the food out at Masbia The kitchen was serving steaks — juicy, 16-ounce kosher shell steaks. Seconds were even available.A soup kitchen that serves steak might sound rather luxurious, but steak night comes only once a year at Masbia, in honor of Grand Rabbi Yeshaya Steiner of Kerestir, Hungary, who died in 1925 and who was known for feeding the hungry.
