Target Groups: Multi-Generational Social Action Progam
This social action program, by using a network of subcommittees responsible for creating individual social action projects, enabled hundreds of M'kor Shalom families to participate in focused on inner-city residents. Many of these programs are interfaith in nature, helping to forge community friendships and alliances. Social action programs included collection of hats and mittens for children, a Passover food drive, a walk-a-thon fund-rasier, volunteering at a homeless shelter, and a Habitat for Humanity rebuilding project. These intensified efforts resulted in greater participation in synagogue social action at M'kor Shalom. Programs will be expanded over the next year.
