Social Action

Tikkun Olam – Repairing the World

Social Action is something in which everyone can participate. The only requirement is a desire to make the world a better place. From the smallest job to the most complex, each act of kindness and caring makes a huge impact on achieving social justice.

The Social Action Committee of TBC provides the focus and mechanism for congregants to get involved in a multitude of projects with varied objectives and served populations.  Without regard to religion, the Social Action Committee provides assistance to local, national and international projects.

For further details or to participate, see below … or contact Peggy Zamore or Jane Alexander at:


The committee has numerous on-going activities and is always open to new suggestions. We are a “hands on” committee that both initiates and joins in on projects affecting both the Jewish and non-Jewish segments of our community.

These projects include: Rise Against Hunger, Dorothy Day Hospitality House-Danbury Soup Kitchen, Our Daily Bread Food Pantry, Diaper Project, Holiday Food Drives / Thanksgiving Baskets, Overflow Homeless Shelter.


Support for all of our projects comes directly from our membership through the Tzedakah Fund; and from the General TBC budget.  You can donate to Social Action projects in various ways:
  • A general donation to the fund in celebration of events such as Bar/Bat Mitzvah, Weddings, Anniversaries, Birthdays, Births, or in memory of someone.
  • Directed donation to one of our projects (e.g., Stop Hunger Now, Diaper Project, Dorothy Day, etc.).
Please consider contributing today using the TBC Donation Form and selecting “Tzedakah Fund.” Thank you for your support.
