Congregation Beth Shalom Social Action Club


Do you know about all the wonderful Social Action projects that are taking place at CBS?
  Are you looking for ways to give back?

We would love for you to join us! We have many events which are appropriate for all ages and are a great way to introduce children to the concept of Tikun Olam.



  • Feed the Hungry...

We aid the hungry in many ways: By donating food to Project Isaiah during the High Holidays, by providing free food to the Title 1 school kids from our Backpack Buddies program; by sorting food bi-annually at the Atlanta Community Food Bank (ages 8 and up) (; by cooking  for the Rebecca's Tent, the Shearith Israel shelter every January;  by donating to the Kosher Pantry at JF&CS through our monthly food drive; by participating in the Hunger Walk in the spring;  and by making sandwiches at Project Open Hand (youth group). (

  • Help the Needy...

We help the needy by knitting scarves and blankets for the Hiddur Knitzvah project for Shearith Israel; collecting scarfs, coats, personal care items an various other items in Partnership with Assistance League Atlanta

  • Care for the Environment...

We care for our environment in many ways: We beautify and eat locally with our own garden,  Gan Gilner.  We beautify the shul each year with the Men’s Club led CBS Beautification Day.  We will be holding a shoe drive to recycle shoes for Soles4Souls. (

  • Chesed Committee...

Helping begins at home and that is why we are expanding our Chesed helpers to include such good deeds as: providing companionship or a ride, visiting the sick, picking up groceries, providing a meal, helping with light yard work, etc.  We would LOVE if we could put your name on the list as a potential available Chesed helper. email

  • Day of Service...

On Martin Luther King's Birthday the congregation comes together to participate in numerous projects to benefit various social action initiatives in our community which include Wee Help, Operation School Bell, Bears for Children, local animal shelters, Back Pack Buddies, Rebecca's Tent and the Sandwich Project.

So How Do I Get Involved?

We will be hosting other events and collection drives so please be on the lookout in the email blasts and bulletins.
