Social Action / Volunteering

The work of Social Action is based on the ethical principles of Judaism, and the notion of Tikkun Olam, the injunction to repair the world. Social Action looks outward to the wider community and society, and the social issues that we feel able to engage with and to raise consciousness about.

Congregation Kol HaNeshama Supports JFCS Camp Mariposa

In partnership with Jewish Family and Children’s Services, our KH Social Action Committee has initiated a project to help the children of JFCS Camp Mariposa beginning on April 1st- May 17th 2024. Our members will purchase school supplies for the children of Camp Mariposa. “Camp Mariposa® of the Suncoast is a year-round addiction prevention and mentoring program for youth affected by the substance use disorder of a family member. Youth ages 9-12 attend weekend camps up to six times a year.

Weekend camps offer fun, traditional camp activities combined with education and support sessions led by mental health professionals and trained adult mentors. Additional social activities are offered for youth and their families throughout the year. Many Camp Mariposa® locations offer programs for teens ages 13-17. All program activities are offered free of charge to families. Camp Mariposa® of the Suncoast is part of Eluna’s national Camp Mariposa® program.“

In addition, KH members will ask friends, neighbors and social media acquaintances to participate.

To assist project participants in making their purchases, Ellen has set up a link with Amazon:

Congregation Kol HaNeshama has successfully partnered with JFCS for several years. We have provided items for Mothers/Babies, Veterans and Elementary School children. Please help us make this year’s Social Action Program successful.
