"When you reap the harvest of your land, you shall not reap all the way to the edges of your field or gather the gleanings of your harvest; you shall leave them for the poor and the stranger."

- Leviticus 23:22
 

At Temple Isaiah, Food Insecurity is one of our key Tzedek (social justice) priorities. We live this value through direct-service activities including:

  • Volunteering at Lexington's Interfaith Garden located near Lexington Center's Battle Green. All of its produce is donated to local food pantries and hunger relief programs.
  • Making bagged lunches at home to deliver to a local homeless shelter.
  • Collecting raisins and whole grain crackers monthly for Family Table Food Pantry, a project of Jewish Family & Children's Service (JF&CS). These food items feed 400 local families in 100 nearby towns.
  • Contributing to a High Holidays food drive, sponsored by our teen community (LEFTY).
  • Preparing and delivering meals for Project Ezra, an annual winter holiday meal for local families, seniors, and veterans in need.
  • Volunteering with fellow Temple Isaiah members for local food security organizations including FoodLink, Lex Eat Together, and Lexington Community Farm.
  • Participating in an annual congregation-wide fundraising dinner to benefit MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger, planned and hosted by our LEFTY teen community.

If you are interested in learning more about any of these opportunities, please email the Wendy Liebow, VP of Tikkun Olam.
