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.

Helping Mothers and Babies

Rabbi Jennifer Singer, the Board of Congregation Kol HaNeshama and the Social Action Committee want to thank all of you for your generous donations to our Social Action Event “Helping Mothers and Babies” in partnership with Jewish Family & Children’s Services.

72 people made donations of items consisting of: strollers, car seats, highchairs, diapers, baby clothing, formula, blankets, bouncy seats, baby carriers, bath tubs and many more items too numerous to mention.

Helping At Risk Women, Kids

Congregation Kol HaNeshama recently spearheaded a social action program responding to the needs of at-risk women and children throughout Sarasota-Manatee. Members of KH filled new or gently used handbags with everyday essentials such as toiletries, sundries and warm socks and encouraged friends and neighbors to do the same. The project resulted in the delivery of some 90 handbags, brimming over with necessities, to Safe Place and Rape Crisis Center (SPARCC) in Sarasota and HOPE Family Services, Inc., in Bradenton.

For additional information on this first of several projects planned by Kol HaNeshama in partnership with Jewish Family and Children’s Service, please visit or call 941.244.2042.

Stay tuned as our Social Action Committee develops our initiatives for 2022 and beyond.
