Social Action

The Social Action Committee of Marlboro Jewish Center has a proud and distinguished history of community service both locally and throughout Monmouth County.

A product of the Steinhokl Social Action Fund, established by the Steinhokl Family, in memory of their parents, Dora and Teddy Steinhokl (grandparents of congregant Cheryl Kempner), the Social Action Committee strives to continue the charitable legacy of its founders. Specifically, the Social Action Committee provides families and individuals with much needed items throughout the year, thereby providing a sense of security that many often lack. Through our annual High Holiday and Thanksgiving Food Drives, the Social Action Committee has donated non-perishable items to Fulfill (formerly the Food Bank of Monmouth and Ocean Counties) for many years.

The Adopt-a-Family Program, established several years ago, provides much needed holiday cheer during the holiday season by donating toys, clothes and other items to local families in need.

Other successful programs of the Social Action Committee include the Passover Meals on Wheels Program, the Mother’s Day Gift Drive(providing toiletries and other essential items to a local Women’s Shelter) and more recently, our Book Drive, benefiting Bridge of Books Foundation.

In addition to helping those in need, the Social Action Committee affords our congregants the opportunity to give back to the community as well as 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 bestowed by the Jewish Family & Children’s Services of Greater Monmouth County and was recognized in a Legislative Resolution.
