“How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world.” – Anne Frank
Our Tzedek committee is dedicated to making our St. Louis community a better place for all. Just as we want shelter, food and education for ourselves, our Tzedek Committee works hard to provide those necessities to others in our community. We invite you to check out the opportunities to get involved! Feel free to contact the congregant listed with each agency or you may contact Debbie Bram at [email protected].
Shaare Emeth’s March 2021 Tzedakah Recipient: Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society
Our Tzedakah for the month of March will go to HIAS (Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society) founded in 1881 to assist Jews fleeing pogroms in Russia and Eastern Europe. In the 2000s, HIAS expanded to assist the most vulnerable refugees of all faiths and ethnicities from all over the world. In the U.S., HIAS works to welcome refugees and advocate on their behalf as well.
