We take the Jewish value of Tikkun Olam, Hebrew for repair the world, as one of our core pillars. Our literacy partnership with HeadStart in Lower Manhattan, volunteering at the shabbat meals programs for Jewish seniors at Project ORE, and at the sandwich making we do for the homeless after our Shabbat services are some of the ways we’re living out our values and we hope that you will join us.
For weekly volunteer reading opportunities in Head Start preschools downtown and to help serve meals to Jewish Seniors on Shabbat, please contact Amy Stollmack at Amy_Stollmack@edalliance.org to RSVP and for more details.
MidnightRun and Tamid bring food, clothing, and personal supplies to women, men, and families that live on the streets on New York City. With multiple “runs” made by churches and synagogues each night, MidnightRun volunteers do over 1000 missions each year. The late-night relief efforts create a forum for trust, sharing, understanding and affection. That human exchange, rather than the exchange of goods, is the essence of the Midnight Run mission. Watch our email postings and calendar for the next Midnight run where we will meet at 8 PM, package dinner bags together, and then head out into the night of the city from 10PM – Midnight to serve others.
We are grateful to the Educational Alliance for a great tikkun olam partnership!
