Tikkun Olam

No Hate/No Fear Solidarity Rally at Synagogue Emanu-El, January 12, 2020

Tikkun  olam (Hebrew for "repair the world") is the Jewish concept of following the commandments to help others.  We as Jews are tasked with repairing the world in preparation for the world to come.  Synagogue Emanu-El's Tikkun olam program of social action and community service is active in our communities--the Jewish community, the Lowcountry, and the world beyond the local.  We are always better together and together we will be as we make Tikkun olam an ever important part of Synagogue Emanu-El.

 

September Tikkun Olam Opportunities:


“SNAP” Your Fingers To Fight Hunger: Join Emanu-El members on September 21 @ 3 pm. in a virtual conference call with the Federal Government during which we will advocate for protections of critical food assistance (SNAP) in the wake of COVID-19.     Currently, a rule is under review that would make access to SNAP benefits more challenging, resulting in increasing hunger.   

This is a unique opportunity to participate in the federal regulatory process and to present our support for hungry families. Interested in participating? Contact sandrabrett1@gmail.com.

High Holiday Food Drive:  Drop off box for non perishable, non expired food will be outside the synagogue from 9-3(?) during the month of September starting after Labor Day.  To benefit James Island Outreach and the Kosher Food Pantry.

 

A big thank you from Jane Edwards Elementary, a school in Edisto Island that is in the very southern tip of Charleston County! 
Synagogue Emanu-El collected and delivered school supplies to the kids for the new year.  (09/18/19)
