Highlight of the Month

Share your story on how you are managing during COVID-19We will try to share as much as we can!

The High Holidays encourage us all to reflect on the past year, to be thankful, repent, and also for tzedakah, gifts to charity. Temple Beth Sholom congregants & guests continue to be very involved with social action and assisting charitable organizations. These include the Salvation Army, All Faiths Food Bank, JFCS Kosher Food Pantry, Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center (SPARCC), and Family Promise.

Temple Beth Sholom’s community food drive has been a huge success! Temple and community members have donated over 1,800 pounds of food to go to local families. Donations have been distributed through Meals on Wheels and through the Salvation Army. Additionally, the Temple received an amazing gift of 15 cases of canned food from Sid Finkelstein. Sid’s thoughtfulness and generosity should be an inspiration to us all.

Everyone who is able is encouraged to drop off canned and non-perishable food items in front of the entrance to Temple Beth Sholom, or if you call the office during business hours, someone will come to your car and pick it up for you.

Participate in Tikkun Olam

Tikkun Olam or "repairing the world" (i.e. social action) has always been important in the Jewish faith. TBS continually works with the Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center through donation drives. We work with All Faiths Food Bank as well and deliver casseroles to the Salvation Army. TBS supports Family Promise as well in providing assistance to homeless families. Reach out to our social action committee for more ways to get involved.
