Social Action


You Can Help Perfect the World In as Little as 10 Minutes!


Everybody must play a role in perfecting the world. In Hebrew, this idea is known as Tikkun Olam, and it’s the mission of the Or Shalom Social Action Committee.


Think you don’t have time for a social action project? Think again! Many projects take only about 10 minutes of your time.

10 Minutes or Less …

  • Career Wardrobe Clothing Drive

Donate gently-used clothes to women reentering the workplace.

  • Toiletries Collection

Donate personal-care items for distribution to area shelters.

  • High Holiday/Passover Food Drives

Donate non-perishable foods for distribution to families in need.


1 Hour or Less …

  • Blood Drives

Typically held once in the fall and once in the spring. Visit for current dates.
