Social Action

The Temple Beth David community is actively involved in tikkun olam (healing or repairing the world). We understand that each of us has a responsibility to change our surroundings and, by extension, the world for the better through participating in tzedakah (justice and righteousness) and g’milut chasidim (acts of loving kindness).

Contact Gail Mann, Chair of the Social Action Committee.


Temple Beth David Food Pantry
A food pantry box containing free non-perishable food items and toiletries is now available in the front parking lot at Temple Beth David. Donations of unopened & unexpired cans, jars and toiletries can be left in the pantry box. Feel free to donate or take food as needed.

Supporting the Community

Sunday Sandwich Hevre 

Students, parents and adult volunteers join together to form the Sunday Sandwich Hevre (SSH) - a hevre is a group of friends who do things together. SSH makes sack lunches for hungry people at Father Bill’s and Mainspring Homeless Shelter in Quincy.

Family Table – JF & CS

Help our neighbors, colleagues and classmates who are living with food insecurity. As part of Family Table South, a program of Jewish Family and Children's Services, we provide 30 boxes of whole grain pasta and 30 cans of salmon to the pantry each month. Please bring cans to the bins at TBD. Place an order on Amazon from the Family Table Wish list. (Quantities of 12 cans or 8 boxes are more helpful and less wasteful than delivery of single items). 

Sign up to bring/order food.

Interfaith Walk For Hunger

Temple Beth David joins with local houses of faith to support Project Bread, a local organization that serves the nearly 18% of Massachusetts households that are food insecure (2020).  We host a three mile local walk in the fall, coming together to help feed the hungry. 

Contact Jeff Greenwald.

Other Ways to Fight Hunger

Volunteer with or donate to the Greater Boston Food Bank or the Westwood Food Pantry.
