Belief in social justice is at the heart of Judaism, and South Street Temple congregants are passionate about engaging in tikkun olam, healing the world.
We organize opportunities throughout the year for congregants to participate in social justice activities, with a particular focus on health care, poverty, and the needs of children.
Our ongoing projects are:
- Annual High Holiday Food Drive for the Lincoln Food Bank and Mazon.
- Annual school supply drive for Saratoga School.
- Monthly meal prep and serving for the kids at the F Street Rec Center.
- Year-round service at Clinic With a Heart: We provide a volunteer team in partnership with Paul United Methodist Church to staff this faith-based, free, urgent care clinic for the uninsured and underinsured.
- Year-round food and sundries collection for the Saratoga School emergency pantry.
Past projects include:
- Public policy forums on health care and early childhood education
- Hosting a community board for Mourning Hope.
- Collections of diapers, children’s books, socks, and mittens for Friendship Home, Community Action Partnership, and Headstart.
- Participation in Habitat for Humanity faith builds.
