Social Action Committee Yom Kippur Program

Monday, September 25, 2023 10 Tishrei 5784

1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Congregation Sherith Israel has a long and proud history of working on many social justice issues, including immigrant support, voting rights, climate change, literacy access, and food insecurity. 

One of our longest and most meaningful projects has involved feeding unhoused families.  Every Sunday, for almost 30 years, many of our congregants have lovingly shopped for, prepared, and delivered nutritious meals to the Compass Family Shelter in the Tenderloin.

Please join the Social Action Committee on Yom Kippur, September 25th, as we welcome the shelter’s Executive Director, Erica Kisch, who will speak about our ongoing partnership and the urgent needs of unhoused people as they move toward independence and a home to call their own.
