Social Action/Tikkun Olam

 
 

Once again, we would like to thank the congregation for helping Temple Mount Sinai reinvigorate its social action efforts. Committee members are exploring project ideas and partnerships with organizations who specialize and have programs where Temple can support and participate.

Our next call to action is described below:

Family is sacred. The last days and weeks of family separation at the border have proved to be chaotic. Most of all we can agree that separating children from their parents is less than ideal. Whatever happens politically, in the coming weeks there will continue to be many needs. With that in mind, we invite you to help in ways that you feel are most meaningful to you:

  1. Our Tikkun Olam Fund (www.templemountsinai.com/donate) will disburse funds to local organizations who are working hard to ensure the safety and well-being of detained children and assisting in the reunification process. Please note your donation is for “detained children” with your donation.
  2. Help Annunciation House provide meals to families who are released from detention and on their way to reunification. Email Alison Westermann (alisonwestermann@gmail.com) your name and phone number so that she can include you on the mobilization list when Annunciation House needs help with a meal.
  3. Bring coloring books and crayons, playing cards, childrens’ books (Spanish) to Temple by Wednesday, June 27th for distribution to detained children (consider bringing something with you for services this weekend).

Over 2,300 detained children remain separated from their families. Reunification will take some time. Let us respond as a congregation.

Sincerely,

Tikkun Olam Committee of Temple Mount Sinai
