Donations in Support of Social Justice

Did you know there are many ways to support social justice efforts at Temple Beth El? 

Our signature High Holy Day Food Drive has been going on for decades. This year’s drive will begin in advance of Rosh Hashanah and continue for several weeks. We work with community organizations specializing in food distribution to make sure your donations are used well. 

Temple Beth El also has a social action fund as one of our options for targeted giving. These funds are used to support social justice work at TBE, including the work of the Social Action Committee. You can make a donation online by choosing “Program – Social Action” in the drop-down menu for payment type. You can also make donations specifically for Mitzvah Day projects, as several donors did this year. Please contact Stefanie Kushner at or 608-238-3123 with any questions or for assistance in making a donation.

Our Religious School weaves the principles of tzedakah and tikkun olam through the curriculum for all grades, teaching students about the importance of giving and repairing our world. Students make contributions during the year to a special tzedakah fund. The older students research community needs, and then the students vote on where to send the money. This year, the organizations that received the most votes were:
