Night Shelter for destitute asylum seekers

 Every year for one week, Sinai hosts a night shelter for destitute asylum seekers. This year our week is in December.  

What is social action?

Social action is a core value and is at the heart of Sinai Synagogue. It includes caring for and about Sinai's individual members and the Synagogue itself.

Practical activities

Social action is an aspect of Jewish life in which everyone can participate, and many Sinai members already do.

Sinai receives more requests to support charities than we possibly can help with our community High Holy Day Appeal but individual members may want to help particular charities by personal donations or arranging fundraising activities. For example, do you know about Leket Israel?
