OUR TEMPLE SHALOM FAMILY reached out with love to those affected by Hurricane Harvey with gifts of needed toiletries, diapers, toys, clothes, food and personal care items. This large collection was delivered to Jewish Family Service of Dallas. While there, we learned of another opportunity to help.

 

This Sunday, JFS needs at least 25 people to box up items for transfer to Houston.

 

Volunteers are needed this Sunday, September 10th

12:00pm - 5:00pm

Temple Shalom’s Tikkun Olam Council is pleased to announce the introduction of its newest committee, Shomrei Adamah — “Guardians of the Earth.”

The Shomrei Adamah committee is dedicated to improving Temple Shalom’s sustainability efforts and increasing awareness of our shared and individual responsibility to honor and protect God’s creation. Our mission is to make sustainability a core value of our congregation through conservation, education, social policy, worship, leadership and action.

The Shomrei Adamah committee is inspired by the story of Genesis, where God placed Adam in the garden of Eden to till it and tend it.  Thousands of years since these words were written, we know that protecting, defending, and taking care of the Earth is our obligation as a Jewish people. God gave the Earth to all beings, and we are in partnership with God. As God is our Guardian, we are Shomrei Adamah, Guardians of the Earth.
