"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
 

There are so many ways to get involved in Tikkun Olam (repairing the world) at Temple Isaiah. In addition to our key tzedek (social justice) priorities, here are some ideas to inspire you to lend a hand. If you are interested in learning more about any of these opportunities, or have an idea for a project, learning opportunity, or partnership, please email Wendy Liebow, VP of Tikkun Olam.

Mitzvah Day

Since 2000, Temple Isaiah has held a joyous, wide-reaching day of community service we call “Mitzvah Day.” This congregation-wide celebration of service has included a fundraising car wash run by our teens; book, toiletry, and other supply drives; letter-writing and craft projects; and off-site volunteering at local parks and farms. Visit the Mitzvah Day page to learn more about this year’s event.

Reproductive Justice Working Group

Reproductive justice is a human rights framework that addresses bodily autonomy and reproductive decision-making. Visit the Reproductive Justice information sheet to learn about Temple Isaiah’s work in this area. Learn how you can get involved with Reproductive Justice here.

 

Greater Boston Jewish Literacy Coalition

Temple Isaiah is proud to be a synagogue partner of the Greater Boston Jewish Literacy Coalition. Through this program, temple members volunteer to tutor and mentor students at local elementary schools.

Red Cross Blood Drives

Twice a year, Temple Isaiah hosts blood drives to help live the Talmudic teaching, "Whoever saves a single life is considered to have saved the whole world." Visit RedCrossBlood.org to sign up to donate blood at Temple Isaiah or in other area locations.

Outreach to Incarcerated Fathers

Temple Isaiah members are working with Concord Prison Outreach, an organization committed to tranforming the lives of incarcerated people. We currently support incarcerated fathers in building strong, loving relationships with their children through book drives, holiday gift bags, and back-to-school supplies.
