A core section of our mission statement commits Temple Shalom to engaging in Tikkun Olam, tangible actions for the betterment of our world. Throughout our history, Temple Shalom and its' Rabbis have been known for a commitment to both social action and social justice.
Through our involvement with the Roxbury Food Pantry and NourishNJ, we help feed the hungry. Through our Youth’s participation in Midnight Run, our Temple’s hosting of Family Promise clients and our Brotherhood’s continuing engagement with Habitat for Humanity, we help bring comfort to the homeless. Through our support of such things as JNF projects, we care for the needs of our homeland. And through our annual Making a Difference Day, we both teach our community about and engage them in a wide variety of community service projects.
