Social Action/Tikkun Olam

 
 

Once again, we would like to thank the congregation for helping Temple Mount Sinai reinvigorate its social action efforts through the recent survey. Already your answers have made an impact.  The survey reveals working with Hunger and Homelessness as areas of interest and concern for the vast majority of congregants.  In the next 30 days, committee members will be exploring project ideas and partnerships with organizations who specialize and have programs where Temple can support and participate.  We hope to be putting together a calendar of Committee sponsored events soon after our next meeting in March 2017.

In the meantime, we will be participating in the Federation’s Good Deeds Day on April 2 by preparing toiletry bags and backpacks with school supplies for the Rainbow Room, an emergency assistance venue for case workers to obtain needed items for children who have been removed from their homes and are going into foster care.  We will be collecting the following items:  gently used backpacks, luggage, diaper bags, car seats, and duffle bags; school supplies for 1st – 5th graders to include glue, crayons, composition books, pencils, erasers, rulers, colored pencils, markers, and notebook paper; and travel sized toiletries.  Donated items can be dropped off at Temple in the Religious School area.  For questions, please contact Darren Brown.

 

If you would like to be a part of Social Action team or if you have any questions, please contact Darren Brown or Rabbi Ben Zeidman.

Tikkun olam” (Hebrew for “world repair”) has come to connote social action and the pursuit of social justice.
