SOCIAL ACTION

Acts of Loving Kindness

Temple Sinai is deeply committed to one of our most sacred values - Tikkun Olam.  Our efforts to mend the world are infused with a profound emphasis on Tzedakah, which enables us to always consider those less fortunate, remember how Jews have been treated throughout history, and welcome all to "our house" as part of our Community.

Through our Social Action Committee, Temple Sinai is widely recognized as a leader of regional civic and social action.

Social Action Committee

The mission of the Temple Sinai Social Action Committee is to perform acts of loving kindness internally, within our Temple community, while tackling global issues to "heal the world."

Our Social Action Committee promotes, facilitates and shares in diverse activities to help our community, and brings focus to the following areas:

2024 MITZVAH DAY AIMS TO ADDRESS COLLEGE FOOD INSECURITY

 

Temple Sinai in partnership with the Jewish Federation of Greater MetroWest will raise awareness and collect and package meal kits to address the increasing challenges of college student food insecurity.  Yes, it is an issue.  

SINAI HOPES TO PACKAGE 500 COLLEGE MEAL KITS
DONATION DROP OFF REQUESTED BY MARCH 31st AT SINAI
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED TO PACKAGE KITS ON APRIL 7th at 1:00pm AT SINAI

What is college food insecurity?  With tight budgets and busy schedules, college students are particularly vulnerable to hunger, which can hinder their abilities to excel in the classroom and put them at greater risk of dropping out.

“Mr. Flores, is a young male from Irvington, NJ who is pursuing a Bachelor’s degree in Business Management and maintains a cumulative GPA of 3.90. He is expected to graduate Fall 2024. Mr. Flores uses the food pantry to “stop the gap” of hunger. Many times he finds it hard to choose between spending money on transportation to school or buying a hot meal. Time and time again, Mr. Flores chooses to spend his money on transportation and finds himself hungry. He uses the pantry to acquire snacks, soups, drinks, and easy prep meals. He often volunteers in the pantry helping with inventory and restocking the shelves at the Newark campus.”
