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:

Temple Sinai has always stood for compassion and supporting those in need. In response to the war in Ukraine, our Temple’s Welcome Circle (WC) and core group of 40+ volunteers have resettled a Jewish Ukrainian refugee family in the U.S.  

Sinai's WC is working through HIAS (founded as the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society). Like it did over the course of the 20th century, HIAS continues to play an important role in offering hope to displaced persons.

“Our family arrived in Munich in the fall of 1945, after crossing two borders illegally, as Displaced Persons (“DP”). My Father contacted HIAS, where Rabbi Bloom was in charge of trying to help the DP’s from many countries. Rabbi Bloom and his American team had difficulties communicating with the DP’s from many countries, and when the Rabbi met my father, a lawyer who spoke 7 languages, he invited him to join in the organization of the service. Father joined HIAS, and after the organization was set up, and the first transports of the DP’s were on the way to the US and other countries, HIAS sponsored us to the United States.”
