REPAIR THE WORLD | COMMUNITY SERVICE
In the Talmud, the mitzvah of feeding people is called Arukh ha-Shulhan, which means “making our table longer.”
When we ensure other people have enough to eat, we are making our own table longer.
TBE Table is a member-driven meal production and distribution program located in the TBE kitchen. Our goal is to produce healthy, delicious meals for those facing food insecurity and to build community while working together towards this important goal. We are seeking additional volunteers to help out on all levels of food production and delivery.
To support TBE Table, select Social Action Fund from the dropdown menu and write in TBE Table in the field that asks “Is there a TBE gift drive you are supporting?”

JF&CS Family Table
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).

TBE’s Community of Adult Social Action (CASA) builds connections and community through small-group social justice activities.
