Social Action

Winter Food Drive 

Many people have asked how they can help the Israeli soldiers and support Israel at this difficult time.  Here are some websites that you can look at and pledge through them.




The mission of the Social Action Committee is to provide members of Ohev Shalom with
opportunities to perform the mitzvah of Tikkun Olam, repairing the world…one of the
most important ways to live a Jewish life.
 Some of our programs are:
 –clothing and food drives
–hametz collection
–blood drives in cooperation with the American Red Cross
–responding to the need for aid after natural disasters
Cook for a Friend
(Volunteers meet at Ohev Shalom the third Wednesday of each
month to assemble dinners for area seniors who are unable to cook for themselves. The
dinners are distributed by the JCC in NE Philadlephia.)
Adopt a Student
(Congregants are matched with impoverished students to purchase
school clothing and backpacks for them over the summer.)
If you are interested in joining our committee, participating in our activities, or
have any suggestions for programs…please contact us at ohev@ohev.org.

 “May G-d who blessed our ancestors,

bless those who give funds for heat and light,

bread to the wayfarer and charity to the poor;

and all who involve themselves with the

needs of this community.”
