Tikkun (Social Action)


Our Congregation provides its members with many opportunities for social action. By reaching out to people in need, we not only help to repair the world, but also strengthen our Jewish identity and provide an important example of our values for our children.

Ongoing Activities

FEGS – Partners in Caring

FEGS – Project Replenish

Every High Holy Day season, we collect bags of groceries equivalent to one day worth of food (breakfast, lunch, and dinner).  These are distributed to Jewish families in need throughout Nassau County.

Food collection for the hungry

Our congregation also collects food weekly and delivers it to both Jewish charity organizations (Hatzilu) as well as the Mary Brennan INN in Hempstead.  We also have an annual paper goods drive for Hatzilu.

Red Cross Blood Drive

In past January’s, we have hosted a Red Cross Blood Drive.  See our calendar of events for more information.

Children’s Tzedakah

The religious school children donate each week of the school year during the Havdalah service and the children vote on which charity will receive the funds at the end of the year.
