Temple Beth Sholom Social Action Mission Statement
Using the gifts, talents and resources God has given us, we will make a difference in our local and global communities by performing mitzvot and other acts of Tikkun Olam. We will connect to each other and our community by integrating social action in all areas of our congregation. We will serve as role models and inspire others in our community to become involved in the pursuit of justice and Tikkun Olam.

In September of 2010 Temple Beth Sholom launched its Mitzvah Meal program in accordance with our Social Action Mission Statement which charges us to “perform mitzvot and other acts of Tikkun Olam.” Our Mitzvah Meal program has energized and is a source of pride for all our congregants, including our Preschool and Religious School students who have food drives and donate their tzedakah specifically for Mitzvah Meals. There are many opportunities to support Mitzvah Meals; join us in the kitchen on Sunday mornings, donate items from our weekly Online News wishlist, serve the needy at the various locations or bake desserts.

Our Temple Beth Sholom Mitzvah Meal program currently provides sustenance for approximately 1200 underserved men, women and children in our community every month. We prepare nourishing, tasty meals in our temple kitchen every Sunday and provide lunch for Casa Teresa and Isaiah House, dinner for Southwest Community Center, Grand St. Center and American Family Housing and “pay forward” overage of perishables to Giving Children Hope, Western Service Workers, Wise Place and First Lutheran Church

Avinu she’bashamayim: On this and every day remember your children, created in Your image, who hunger for bread and thirst for water. Take heed of all those who wander in search of food, whose worlds have gone dark through no fault of their own.
