Social Action

The Social Action Committee of Marlboro Jewish Center has a proud and distinguished history of community outreach both locally and throughout Monmouth County. The Social Action Committee provides numerous individuals and families not only with everyday necessities but also with companionship and meaningful connections to members of the Jewish community. The Social Action Committee participates in the annual Monmouth County Mitzvah Day, which usually takes place in late October. On Mitzvah Day, many synagogues and various Jewish organizations donate their time to improve the lives of those less fortunate. The numerous initiatives include food drives, clothing drives, blood drives and toy drives, as well as entertainment in local senior communities. Another benchmark project of the Social Action Committee is the annual Passover Kosher-Meals-On-Wheels program in which volunteers of all ages pack and deliver Kosher for Passover meals to those families and individuals unable to obtain these meals on their own. A new initiative of the Social Action Committee is the Adopt a Family program, in which congregants volunteer to adopt a family for the holiday season (Hanukkah/Christmas). They provide gifts and goodwill for these families to brighten their holidays. In addition to providing much needed items to families and individuals in our community, our volunteers are afforded the opportunity to connect with other congregants in a positive, constructive and charitable way. The Marlboro Jewish Center Social Action Committee was the recipient of the 2008 Volunteer Organization of the Year award as bestowed by the Jewish Family & Children’s Services of Greater Monmouth County and recognized in a Legislative Resolution.

Mark your calendars.  The Social Action Committee will be meeting on Monday, January 22nd at 8pm in the main building.
