Tikkun Olam, or repairing the world through social action, is a hallmark of the Reform Movement. The Social Action Committee works to create and promote opportunities for temple members to “heal the world” through Tikkun Olam throughout the year. The committee is co-chaired by Claire Winthrop and Mimi Reinbold. Please look at the many programs available to find ones that might fit into your busy schedule.
MainSpring House Dinner Program
“Every person should give as he is able, according to the blessing of your God which has been given to you.” (Deuteronomy 16:17)
Temple Sinai members have been providing hot meals for residents of the MainSpring House shelter on the second Sunday of each month for many years. We help feed and serve between 60-100 guests each month. Cooked dinners are picked up at the temple at 3:00 pm, delivered and served at MainSpring from 4:30-6:00 pm.
You can be part of this ongoing mitzvah project by volunteering to cook a main dish or a dessert for 8 people, or by volunteering to serve meals. Prepare a main dish, vegetable dish and/or a dessert, and bring it to the temple kitchen by 2pm on the Friday before or when you come to services Friday night. PLEASE LABEL AND DATE ALL ITEMS FOR MAINSPRING (this is a Board of Health requirement).
