Thank you for volunteering!

Helping the homeless, feeding the hungry and the Transformation Walk are the social action events that we participate in during the fall and/or spring.

The Greenville Area Interfaith Hospitality Network (GAIHN) assists local congregations to share hospitality (in the form of emergency food and lodging) with homeless families, and to help those families achieve self-sufficiency and self-fulfillment. Twice a year the Temple houses families, provides meals and recreation activities for the children for one week (see above).

United Ministries

Each year during the Days of Awe, families bring non-perishible foods to be donated to the United Ministries Food Bank. Our contributions are greatly appreciated, especially because this time of year was historically slow for donations.

Transformation Walk

October 23, 2016

Venue: Fluor Field at the West End
Location: Downtown Greenville
Time: 2:00pm
Help us reach our goal of $300 and 15 team members by clicking here. For more information, call Rabbi Master.

Each year we participate as a group in the United Ministries Walk for the Homeless. This is not just a walk fundraiser, it's an educational tour, too. We travel the same route (approximately 4 miles) that our homeless and less fortunate neighbors take when seeking assistance from human services agencies.
