Tikkun Olam: Social Action

Bikkur Cholim - Supporting One Another

Please contact Doris Fasbender (doris.fasbender@colorado.edu) and Elizabeth Otto (elzbeth.otto@aim.com) if you can help offer care in the Nevei Kodesh community.

From taking food to families who are in grief or caring for an ill family member, to giving rides to and from appointments, to paying a call to an ailing congregant, or simply making a phone call to wish someone well.

Perhaps you could contribute a container of soup or a main dish (precisely labeled, of course) once in a while?  Make a phone call?

Whether you can help on a regular basis or just once in a blue moon, we really need your energy and time. Thank you!

Community Table: Serving Meals to the Poor

Give back to our Boulder community the fourth Monday of every month by serving dinner to Boulder’s homeless and working poor. First shift begins at 4:00pm to set up and prepare the food. Second shift is from 5:00-6:30pm for serving the meal and cleaning up. Children and teens are always welcome! It is a fun and lively group of volunteers and a great mitzvah for those who need a hot, filling meal!
Location is at The First Methodist Church at 15th and Spruce Streets in Boulder.
