Social Action/Tikkun Olam (SATO) has been an important component of synagogue life at Midbar Kodesh Temple, and MKT members are always ready to give back to the community.
Good Deeds Day, a community wide SATO program headed up by the Jewish Federation of Las Vegas and The Israeli American Committee, found MKT members out and about at different venues across the valley.
Members had multiple projects in-house including packing bins for teens that age out of foster care and making sandwiches lunch bags for the Broken Chains Outreach Mission. During the week that ended on Good Deeds Day, four families of Family Promise were the guests of Midbar Kodesh Temple.
This month, in honor of Passover week, MKT families are cleaning their pantries to help fill the food pantry at the Jewish Family Services Agency. They need unopened non-perishable food items or cash donations for gift cards. Reminding you to drop off what you can from now to Passover so that once again, Midbar Kodesh Temple can help in building a better world.
Thank you for all who participated in Good Deeds 2016 and a thank you to the Jewish Federation of Las Vegas and the IAC who brought the program to us and the entire community.
