Monthly Lunch Making

We are collecting and delivering sack lunches to homeless shelters the 2nd Tuesday of every month .  

To do this mitzvah at home:
1.    Put on gloves and a mask.
2.    Decorate and write a note on the outside of the paper lunch bag (optional).
3.    Make PBJ sandwiches (alternate butter is fine if you have a nut allergy) and put in silver foil, saran wrap or ziplock bag.
4.     Pack the sandwich with a napkin, fruit, water and snack like chips.
5.    Drop off to the North Campus parking lot between 10:30-11:30 a.m. on the 2nd Tuesday of the month and we will take care of delivery.

 

Shabbat Challah

We are continuing to bring the joy of Challah on Shabbat to our congregants that are not able to purchase or come to the Temple to pick up Challah due to being ill or concerned about leaving their home at this time.  Please consider making a donation to sponsor a challah and we will have it delivered thanks to the generosity of ziply courier service.

 

Jewish World Watch

HAMAKOM has been a proud member of Jewish World Watch (an organization dedicated to bringing an end to genocide in the world) since its inception in 2005. We proudly participate in activities and events throughout the year to raise money and awareness about genocide around the world and to remind ourselves and others to not stand idly by.

Community Garden

HAMAKOM's Community Garden is located at the back of the parking lot on the side of the hill. A dedicated team of volunteers plant, prune, and harvest the fruits and vegetables that get donated to local food banks. We always welcome new volunteers, especially children accompanied by their parents, so they will learn where their food comes from. For more information, email Gil Solomon at CaliforniaMD@aol.com.
