Temple Beth Sholom’s Social Action oriented congregation represents the true meaning of tikkun olam. Our Mitzvah Meal program provides nourishing meals every Sunday to an average of 200 people. Our volunteers prepare meals in our temple kitchen and serve at 3 different venues. In addition we provide perishable and non-perishable food to several other shelters.
Our Adopt-A-Social Worker program collects a variety of necessities through our Mitzvah of the Month. Each month we have a drive for specific items such as diapers and baby items, books, backpacks and school supplies, holiday gifts, warm clothing, pajamas and socks.
We support Jewish World Watch with donations for solar stoves and backpacks and attend the annual Orange County Walk to End Genocide.
Our Mitzvah Day program offers of variety of community projects including gleaning, Ronald McDonald House, Isaiah House, Hemopet, blanket making and Knots of Love. New projects are included as they become available.
There are Social Action projects ongoing in every area of our synagogue including Religious School and Preschool.
