Rebecca's Tent

Help the Shearith Israel Homeless Shelter

“Volunteering gives me an opportunity to give back to my community.”

Shearith    “It feels good to help others.”       (Israel Shelter volunteers)


Congregation Beth Shalom has made a commitment to cook kosher dinners for the Shelter at Shearith Israel called Rebecca’s Tent from Sunday, January 12 to Saturday, January 18, 2020.


Shearith Israel’s Shelter for Homeless Women provides temporary housing for women in transition and assists these women in getting their lives back together. Volunteers are needed to help cook kosher meals for approximately 15 women, transport the food from Congregation Beth Shalom to the shelter, and serve the food. Last year, groups like Sisterhood, Mens Club, USY/Kadima, 7th grade school, preschool, and our Girl Scout Troop cooked for the shelter, but we need individual congregants to also volunteer for this important mitzvah. We especially need people to transport the food. Adults and children found it very meaningful to help others in such an important way.
