Social Action

Our social action committee is very active and involved in a number of different projects like blood drives, collecting food for homeless shelters, and collecting supplies for schools in under-priveleged neighborhoods.

Before Passover and Thanksgiving, we deliver food to the elderly that would otherwise not be able to celebrate the holidays.

Our Mitzvah Minstrels perform regularly at an eldercare facility.

The committee also assists Bar and Bat Mitzvah children in the selection and execution of their Mizvah projects.

If any of this appeals to you and you feel you would like to participate in Tikun Olam, please join us.
