Recognizing that the impact that a large group of committed citizens can make, Temple Emanu-El reached out to the four other Jewish congregations.
Preparation: Temple Emanu-El reached out to the four area Jewish congregations to bring everyone together for acts of tikkun olam. A joint committee was created and chose specific projects to pursue.
Project Implementation: Together, the congregations were able to hold blood drives, participate in Habitat for Humanity builds, and other such social action projects.
Results: Working together, the Ontario Jewish community made a significant impact in addressing local social issues. Through this effort, a long-term partnership was built. This partnership holds annual blood drives and has expanded their efforts to other areas.
