Current Tikkun Olam Activities

Bnai Keshet's commitment to the work of Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World) is central to our role as participants in the evolution of Judaism. Our work currently includes:

  • Montclair Sanctuary Alliance - an interfaith network of congregations, organizations and individuals offering sanctuary to individuals resisting detention and deportation in order to stay together with their families and communities. We stand publicly against the injustices affecting immigrants and support reforms to promote fairness. Click here to Support the Sanctuary Alliance directly.
  • MESH - Montclair Emergency Services for the Homeless (MESH) partners with churches and synagogues in the Montclair community to serve thousands of nourishing evening meals for homeless and near-homeless residents of Montclair. Bnai Keshet hosts MESH Cafe every Monday night. 
  • St. Paul's Mens Shelter - Bnai Keshet and the Islamic Center of Passaic County (ICPC) jointly volunteer the first Saturday to make and serve dinner to the guests of the St. Paul's Men's Shelter in Paterson. 
  • Interfaith Hospitality Network - IHN provides emergency shelter and a host of other support services to homeless families through a network of houses of worship throughout Essex County.
  • Hesed - The Hesed committee at Bnai Keshet provides support for members of our community who need a helping hand at stressful times. 
  • Immigration Reform - We continue to work with a coalition of Jewish and interfaith organizations towards comprehensive reform of the immigration system in the United States. Our key partner in this endeavor is HIAS (The Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society. HIAS and our national and local Jewish organization partners have launched We Were Strangers, Too: the Jewish Campaign for Immigration Reform.
