Social Action


From an “Ice cream for Breakfast” Blood Drive to a cleanup of the Saw Mill River, Shaarei Tikvah embraces social action throughout the year.  Regular activities include:

  • Cooking Days in our kitchen to make lasagna, cookies, salad and more for a Westchester soup kitchen. (no cooking experience required and kids are welcome). See Home Page for upcoming Cooking Days.
  • Participation in the United Interfaith Food Bank, a consortium of five houses of worship that collect, pack and deliver 200 shopping bags of non-perishable items each month for Bronx pantries. We hold a special High Holiday food drive each year. (Food items gratefully accepted in synagogue lobby).                                         
  • Purim Shalach Manot – packing and delivering healthy goody bags for isolated seniors in the Bronx.
  • Back-to school supply and fall holiday gift drives.
  • B’nai Mitzvah class mitzvah projects.

Each year we do new projects, so please check our calendar regularly!
