Charity is a fundamental part of the Jewish way of life.  Reaching out to those in need is central to Jewish being.  Congregation Beth Shalom offers opportunities to donate your time and/or items to help others.  Beth Shalom will continue with projects of the past and will establish new projects - all which will need volunteers!

Volunteer to join our CBS Social Action Committee and be one of our Mitzvah Volunteer Partners (MVPs). No experience is required.  Have a suggestion for a project? New areas of concern can be addressed at any moment.  .  Most of all, we need your help. Use the links on the left to see our upcoming activities.  Check this site often for updates!

CBS IN ACTION Throughout the Year
During the past year, more than 300 CBS volunteers of all ages – young and old alike - have helped our community, but we need many, many more. We need leaders/coordinators who can spearhead projects as well as volunteers to make these projects happen and support our Jewish and non-Jewish friends in need.  With your help 

We at Congregation Beth Shalom

  • feed and clothe the local homeless through PADS shelters
  • provide support to local Jewish social service agencies such as Shalva, Jewish Child and Family Services, the Ark,  and others
  • support our troops
  • provide flu shots
  • provide much needed assistance to LifeSource through our annual blood drive
  • stock and sort food at our local food pantry

Help with one or with all – whatever works for you and your situation. If time is an issue, try a short project - something that takes just an hour or two like stocking our local Northfield Township food pantry, which is a quick and easy social action project. 

Please email Sandee Levin at [email protected] or call her at  847-372-5744 if you can join us or have a project to suggest.
