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.
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.).
