The social action committee is always looking for new members who want to get their proverbial hands dirty. Each affiliate group at Sinai does so much to help the community as a whole. On this committee we look for opportunities to unite all of the synagogue behind some key projects.
Home For Good
Home for Good works to end chronic homelessness in LA. Gather your household goods and help a formerly homeless person make their new home a place to love!
Hanukkah Toy Drive
Join Sinai Temple's annual toy drive! Donate a new, unwrapped toy to the children at Vista Del Mar. Toy collection bins will be located throughout Sinai Temple starting in early November. Contact the Program Department for more information.
Adopt a child and his or her family for Hanukkah. As an angel, you will buy a special gift that will make Hanukkah brighter for those in need. Team up with your family, your friends, or be an angel on your own. You will fulfill wishes, and your hearts will be overjoyed.
Sinai’s Social Action Committee is organizing this effort among our members for Chai Lifeline. This program fills up every year, so please let us know if you're interested in participating by mid-September.
