DIRECT SERVICE ACTIONS
Temple Israel of Hollywood partners with several organizations to give back to the community.
In addition to volunteer opportunities with our partners, we have ongoing direct service and actions at TIOH:
Drop-in online for our monthly Phone Action Wednesday! We will make phone calls, write postcards, and learn from experts on a wide range of social justice issues. Folks who are new to this kind of advocacy work, as well as veteran engagers, are welcome. Parents are encouraged to bring children of all ages. Breakfast is always served. Training is continually available. This is a space of community and learning. Please check the calendar for upcoming dates.
Join friends, or make new ones, by providing pre-packaged meals to homeless and hungry L.A. youth. You can shop for us, too! If you have limited time, The Lunch Project serves up a perfect opportunity for you to help. Contact Alexa Pogue at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
For 30 years, TIOH members and friends have been serving Christmas dinner to over 1200 of our homeless and hungry neighbors from across L.A. In a typical year we provide individuals and families with a beautiful, table-served holiday meal, clothing, fresh socks, blankets, toiletries, new toys, and photos with Santa Claus. With the current situation, the event has been modified to follow safety precautions. Please join our planning team! Contact Sophie Sartain at email@example.com for more information.
TIOH helps fight hunger! The temple is always collecting items in support of SOVA. With a barrel in the Martel Entrance/Mund Promenade, anyone who wishes to help support this important project can by simply dropping off much needed non-perishable items. Contact Rabbi Jocee at firstname.lastname@example.org to find out what items are currently in need.
Every year, TIOH members participate in Best Food Forward and provide a few hundred pairs of new shoes to local elementary school children in need. For many of the recipient children, these are their very first pair of brand new shoes. Each donor is matched with a specific child in need so they can provide the proper size and fit. To participate, please contact Ronit (email@example.com) at TIOH’s Briskin Elementary School at (323) 876-8330 x4000.
