Social Action and Interfaith Engagement
Cathedral Soup Kitchen on Christmas Day
For over 30 years, Beth-El Zedeck congregants have volunteered to cook and serve meals on Christmas Day. Volunteers prepare a full turkey dinner in their homes and spend Christmas Day at the Cathedral Soup Kitchen feeding those in need, allowing the regular staff to enjoy the priceless gift of family time on a special holiday.
You can help by cooking dishes such as turkey, mashed potatoes, and dessert in advance; donating needed supplies; and/or preparing and distributing boxed meals on Dec. 25. This year, we're requesting that everyone who signs up to serve on Christmas day also signs up to donate at least one food item/supply. This is a wonderful opportunity to do a mitzvah!
Habitat for Humanity Interfaith Build
Each year we work with Habitat for Humanity and many other congregations on their interfaith build.
We offer meals Mondays and Wednesdays to homebound members of the Jewish community. If you know of someone in need of this service or if you can volunteer to deliver meals monthly, please contact Jennifer Hodes in the synagogue office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (317) 253-3441. This program is made possible through the Sidney Maurer Memorial Fund to Feed the Hungry.
We celebrate diversity and welcome all. We want to know your true self.
