Tikun Olam (repairing the world) is a major cornerstone of Judaism. Whether we’re collecting funds, gathering goods, or raising awareness, social action is part of our congregation’s commitment to our congregational family and beyond.
Together, we can do so much. Whether we’re taking care of a treasured TIS member or family, supporting the needs throughout our community, or reaching even beyond San Diego, TIS is dedicated to caring for one another, those in need of care, and the unseen. We hope that you participate in all of our opportunities that are grounded in our teachings, values, and traditions as a Jewish community.
Throughout the year we will have special projects that we're focused on for a specific period of time. Click here to see our current projects.
*Food Collection - There is always a need for non-perishable food items for those experiencing food insecurity. TIS has a collection barrel in our foyer throughout the year. While we host food drives during the year, we encourage you to drop food into the barrel whenever you're coming to TIS. Food items are shared with the JFS Hand Up Food Pantry as well as Take What You Need.
*Cook it Forward – We’ll get together once a quarter to prepare and freeze meals that can be distributed to TIS members who may need, people who are ill or people who are celebrating simchas.
*Blood Drives -The Red Cross is experiencing the worst blood shortage in over a decade. The dangerously low blood supply levels have forced some hospitals to defer patients from major surgery, including organ transplants. Your donation is desperately needed.
We invite you to participate in this act of chesed (an act of loving kindness) and give the gift of life. The San Diego Blood Mobile will be set up in our parking lot, fully equipped and ready to take your donation. Click here for the date of our next Blood Drive.
If you would like to participate in any of these initiatives or if you have other ideas about how we can take care of our community email or call Beth at the office. Someone from our Social Action Committee will be in touch.
