Our Broader Community
Temple Sinai has vibrant lay-led groups that offer daytime and evening programming and opportunities to do social justice projects and acts of kindness. For every age and stage, our tikkun olam projects range from local initiatives, including clothing and food drives, preparing and delivering meals to the homeless, providing much needed toiletries to shelters or warm clothing to those in need, to international projects that include working with the Reform community in Israel to construct a preschool, knitting hats and scarves for the Israel Defense Forces, and even giving sight to those who cannot afford glasses.

Having the opportunity to go out in the van was eye opening, but not in the way I expected it to be. What my eyes were opened to was a community of kind, polite individuals who — for whatever reason — are currently living on the streets. While feeling safe and in great professional hands, I was able to interact and learn from these people, and add to the support that Ve’ahavta offers them five nights a week. There wasn’t one person I met that night whose genuine gratitude I couldn’t feel. It was amazing to feel like I was helping fill a void in these people . . . whether it was by way of a warm cup of coffee, a meal, or a comforting conversation. I’m looking forward to going out in the van again soon.
