The goal of the TBR Social Action Committee is to facilitate various projects and volunteer opportunities for our temple members within the Jewish community as well as within the secular community in the spirit of Tikkun Olam.
A sample of these projects will include reaching out to senior citizens, victims of domestic violence, helping Jewish communities in other countries, cooking for the homeless, helping with environmental issues, as well as coordinating the Temple's Mitzvah Day and helping collect donated goods for the Jewish Federation's Mitzvah Day. We also plan to coordinate year-round collection drives for outside organizations. We are still in the planning stages of this committee and would welcome any congregant interested in participating.
If you are interested in joining the committee and have some ideas to share, please contact Abi Grossman at 917-700-5900.

Thank you to everyone who gave so generously to the Sukkot and Simchat Torah festival meal food drive this year. We collected over 25 bags of food which were given to the Jewish Federation of Northern NJ and the Wayne Interfaith Network Food Pantry. Thanks TBR! It was truly a mitzvah to help support our neighbors who are in need. There is a food collection basket in the lobby all year long and we ask that everyone donate non-perishable food whenever possible. Each month a different local food pantry or food distribution organization will benefit from your support. Thank you.
