Nearly every Wednesday evening, the Soup Kitchen at Beth Emet Synagogue, 1224 Dempster St., serves some 100 guests in need of a hot meal. The Wednesday before Thanksgiving is always a Soup Kitchen night, and for the last five years one man – with the support of his family and a cadre of returning volunteers – “owns” the Soup Kitchen.
