Tikkun (Social Action)

Tikkun Olam means repairing the world. Our Congregation provides its members with many opportunities for social action. Our programs benefit women’s and teen shelters, foster children and homeless veterans, the homebound and the hungry. By reaching out to people in need, we not only help to repair the world, but also strengthen our Jewish identity and provide an important example of our values for our children.

If you would like to get involved with organizing, volunteering, or funding and of these activities and programs please contact Noah Herringmann

Ongoing Activities

Interfaith Garden

Each year CBS partners with members of the Newman Center to plant and harvest the garden just past the CBS south parking lot. Last year we provided over 1,500 pounds of fresh food to the food bank. Volunteers work in the garden on Sundays from 10am – noon.

Food Donation

Please deposit food cans year round in the collection box at the entrance to the Sanctuary. We do a big food drive for High Holy Days, and we continue to provide for the hungry all year. 

Remember, anytime you come to CBS, it is an opportunity to bring a can with you!

Desserts for Loaves and Fishes

It takes our CBS community to fulfill this mitzvah of providing desserts for Loaves and Fishes on Sundays.  Please sign up for your Sunday and deliver to Wilkes Blvd. Methodist Church at 702 Wilkes Blvd. between 4:30-5:00 pm.  Each family will provide dessert for 40-50 people (2 families for every Sunday).  When you drop off your store bought or baked dessert let them know it is from the Jewish community. We also host the dinner at Loaves and Fishes when there is a 5th Sunday in a month.
