Thank you for partnering with us in Tikkun Olam!
Many people are unable to attend a Messianic Jewish synagogue, yet they have a deep love for the Jewish people and would like to have an impact in the Messianic Movement. Most Messianic congregations are not large and need financial assistance. This is how you can make a difference. Your donation will help Congregation Simchat Yisrael make a difference in the Jewish community.
Listed below are some of the programs we created and some of the past events we have sponsored. It is through programs such as these that we are able to convey our love and even our understanding of the Messiah to the wider Jewish community.
“New Cloths For A New Start” Brand new clothing given to people in need. Over the last five years we have given over one half million dollars worth of new clothing away to battered woman, single parents and people who are looking for a helping hand as the try to start over.
“Literacy For Life” Yearly we raise awareness of the need for literacy among the children of Connecticut . Toward that goal we collect children’s books and donate them to programs that are able to achieve the goal of literacy for life. To date we have donated well over 1000 books. (This is a new program.)
“Food Drive 2010 and Beyond” Simchat Yisrael has established what we call a food safe. Each week we collect non-perishable food and place it in the food safe. At the end of the month the food is brought to the Westville Food Bank for distribution among those in need. In conjunction with this effort each year we do a massive food drives to help those in need as well. We are one of the largest single food donation sources at the Westville food bank.
“Coats Save Lives” In this program we ask people to donate coats to help people in the former Soviet Union who often freeze to death because they do not have any coats. We have sent tons of coats to people in need.
“The Dead Sea Scrolls” In the past Congregation Simchat Yisrael had a copy of the Dead Sea Scrolls on public display. This was one of six scrolls that were on tour in the U.S. and was brought to our community through the generosity of people like you.
We support the poor abroad through a program called Chevera. Through this program we have given away tons of clothing and have financially supported several soup kitchens that serve over twenty thousand people a month.
We Have Established a youth program that teaches both the value of faith in G-d and the need to put that faith into action. Our youth help in our philanthropic efforts and more. They help elderly people with chores that they are no longer able to perform due to age. The program is called L.A.U.N.C.H and it is designed to aid teens to learn how responsible adults relate to our community. All are welcome in this program.
