Tikun Olam This Month

Tikun Olam: Social Action at TIS

As a community, we can make a difference in the lives of our members and the community at-large. Whether it’s one of our ongoing projects or a time specific opportunity, your support is needed and appreciated.

Cook it Forward

Whether our members are experiencing challenging times or the joy of welcoming a new little one, sometimes a nice meal just warms the heart.

What is needed?

Monetary contributions! After that, we’ll do the cooking and delivering! In addition, if you’d like to be on our “call list” for helping to prepare food (in a gathering at TIS or at home), let Beth know by email or call her at the office.

How can you make a donation?

  1. Make an online donation to the TIS General Fund and indicate “Cook it Forward” in the space for additional remarks or instructions.
  2. Send a check made out to TIS and indicate that the contribution is to support “Cook it Forward.”
  3. Call the office at 619 697-6001.

Food Bank at TIS

Our collection barrel is available throughout the year. During normal business hours you may leave your donations with our guard. If you’re coming to TIS for a meeting, services, Preschool, or Torah School, feel free leave your contributions in the barrel located in the foyer. Items do not need to be kosher. Collected items are shared with JFS Hand Up Food Pantry and Take What You Need.

Cold Weather Items are Needed

Donations of new blankets, jackets, mittens/gloves, and hats are welcomed. We’ll accept these donations now through the end of January. Please drop off items in the same manner as the food bank items listed above.
