Give Your Spirit A Workout!



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. 

    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!

    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.
