The CRT Social Action Committee proudly sponsors three major events each year:
- We are happy to be involved in Project Replenish, the regional collection of non-perishable foods and cleaning supplies at High Holy Day time. Our contributions help stock the food pantry at the Mid Island Y JCC in Plainview.
- CRT is known for its Christmas Day Food Delivery to staff at local hospitals, police stations, and veterinary clinics remaining open on the holiday. We provide full home cooked meals to all personnel, delivered with a note of thanks to our first responders.
- Each year we hold a Mitzvah Day, the theme of which varies from year to year, but it is always an opportunity to learn and provide service to the temple and community.
In addition to our major projects, we choose 6 nonprofit organizations to benefit from our Tzedakah collections. The Tzedakah project for the month is announced at services and a large Tzedakah box outside the sanctuary is available for cash donations.
Beneficiaries in the past have been: Mazon, Helping Hands, UJA, JNF, The Society for the Protection of Nature in Israel, The American Cancer Society, the American Heart Association, and the Eastern Farm Workers Association.
