Tikkun Olam Committee

 

 

The Shul of New York Tikkun Olam (repair the world) Committee was formed to work on Social Justice/Social Action projects.  Every month there will be a Shul Tzedakah (charity) Project aimed at supporting community causes.  

The Shul has participated in marches, forums on Syrian refugees, Passover package delivery to seniors, a Seder in a mosque, and met with U.S. Representative Carolyn Maloney.  In addition, our Tsedakah projects have included Pads for a Purpose and Bar Ministry.

In addition, we will participate in other social action projects and events.  Please check this page often to learn what we are doing and how you can be involved.   

Please take a moment to complete our Social Justice/Social Action survey.  This helps us understand the issues that matter most to the Shul community.

For more information or to suggest a project, please email us at TikkunOlam@theshulofnewyork.org.

 

Monthly Tzedakah Project - May
 

Every month, The Shul of New York will take part in a Tzedakah (charity) Project aimed at supporting community causes. This month's project is GOOD+ Foundation.


GOOD+ Foundation (formerly Baby Buggy) was founded in 2001 by Jessica Seinfeld shortly after the birth of her first child. Fifteen years later, they have collected and donated almost 20 million items to a national network of over 100 antipoverty programs. Together with their partners, they have helped to break the cycle of family poverty through the power of donated goods and services.
 

How You Can Help

The Shul is collecting new parent/baby essentials such as:

  • diapers (larger sizes, training diapers),
  • wipes, diaper creams, baby toiletries,
  • white onesies,
  • sippy cups & bottles,
  • pacifiers, 
  • teethers,
  • home safety items,
  • formula.

Any and all of the above will work nicely for the programs they serve!

You may bring the items to Shabbat services on May 5th or 19th at MCC.  Please bring only brand new items.  You may also drop items off or deliver to Tzedakah, c/o J Brancaccio, 105 W 13 St  Apt 3C, New York, NY 10011.
