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 Jeff Greenwald, Chair of the Social Action Committee.

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.

Contact Lynn Kaminski.

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
