One of 4 children go to bed hungry every night! Food Insecurity is a terrible problem everywhere we look. We must help! Temple Israel will be collecting the non-perishable food items listed below M-F/9am-5pm. Everything we collect in April will go to our new friends: Farmworkers Association of Florida/Homestead Location. Involve your children so they can know the need and be part of our effort...and please be generous. Thank you!

Want a way to give from the comfort and safety of your homes? Use INSTACART! Select the non-perishable items, pay online, and have the groceries delivered directly to Temple Israel for distribution with other food donations...Thanks again!
The Anti-Racism and Intersectional Justice Fund (ARIJ Fund) was established in 2020 by a coalition of 40 Asian American and Pacific Islander organizations to address the alarming spike in anti-Asian violence and hate crimes spurred by race-based targeting of China and Chinese people as scapegoats for the COVID-19 pandemic -- with much deeper roots in the race-based targeting that has been going on for centuries, particularly against African Americans. To show solidarity against anti-Asian hate crimes and to stand up for Racial Justice, please click here to learn more and donate to this important fund.

Along with congregations from around the southeast, Temple Israel is a proud supporter of Camp Jenny. For over 30 years, Camp Jenny has supported children from Inner City Atlanta with fun, meaningful programming, the love of "big brothers and sisters," and encouragement for the future. Every aspect of Camp Jenny is planned and run by Jewish teens from around the southeast, in partnership with NFTY-SAR, NFTY-STR, and URJ Camp Coleman. We are proud that Justin Sharmat one of our TIFTY teens is volunteering with Camp Jenny 2021. Please help contribute on this year’s Day of Giving on Sunday, April 11. Camp Jenny hopes to raise at least $1,800 to allow us to finish the year strong with 2 more months of great programming!
