COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT | REPAIR THE WORLD
Collections & Tzedakah
“When you give food to a hungry person, give him your best and sweetest food.”
Support our community partners that help people in need.
Thank you for contributing to our collections.
Monthly Tzedakah Box
Each month TBE donates funds to an initiative that repairs our world.
During the months of April and May we will make contributions from TBE’s Social Action Fund to assist some of our partner organizations during a potential shortfall of supplies and/or funding. Please help us replenish these funds by contributing to the Social Action Fund, our virtual Tzedakah Box.
Check our calendar to learn about our current collection for local non-profits. Bring items to the bins in the atrium.
JF&CS Family Table (Ongoing)
Jewish Family and Children’s Service Family Table is Greater Boston’s only Jewish food pantry. As a community, each month we are responsible for supplying 50 cans of salmon and 50 boxes of whole grain cereal for families in need (see our donation guide for examples).
Please sign up to donate safely:
Purchase at the store: Buy 5 cans of salmon or 5 boxes of whole-grain cereal and drop them off at a congregant’s home (details provided upon signup).
Purchase online in bulk: Buy at a minimum 12 items and ship them directly to JF&CS at Attn: Bernice Behar, Jewish Family and Children’s Service, 1430 Main Street, Waltham, MA 02451.
Donations are needed by Tuesday, June 2 for the June 7 distribution date to Family Table’s clients.
Women’s Lunch Place
This daytime shelter for homeless and low income women serves breakfast and lunch to 175 daily and offers guests showers, sleeping rooms, clothes, field trips, and advocacy.
Each spring, TBE collects small toiletries, like the ones from hotels, for the women.
Individual Drives & Collections
Many members organize their own drive or collection in honor of their child’s Bar or Bat Mitzvah or other
simcha. Reach out if you’d like to discuss the opportunity.
