Social Action Events


The first Monday of every month

Once a month for the last 20+ years, committed individuals have gathered to construct a couple of hundred sandwiches to deliver to local soup kitchens and food pantries. They have become a close knit group and would love your help. For more information, contact the temple office.



Always the first Sunday in May!

Our members are doing “mitzvot” (good deeds) all the time but, once a year, Temple Sinai comes out in force to make a difference in the community. Starting early and ending with a good old-fashioned BBQ, one can choose from many types of activities. Some require getting your hands dirty and others simply opening your heart. To register yourself, suggest a project or for more information contact Monica Schlessinger at



Wednesday, December 25

This day, each year, Temple Sinai members serve the afternoon meal at New Covenant House Soup Kitchen. Much of our Greater Stamford community is celebrating but those without enough to eat are still hungry and we are ready to help. Roll up your sleeves because everyone has a role to fill. For more information, please contact Sally Kelman at 203.322.0518



This group of members has been quietly cooking and serving an entire meal at the New Covenant House for the hungry once a month for many years. They receive no great public praise for their hard work but you should know about their efforts. If you’re interested in supporting their work, please contact Eileen Besser (203.966.5525), Lisa Popper (203.966.9286) or Sharyn Sarner (203.968.2504).



For at least 15 years, Temple Sinai has served dinner to the women at Inspirica (formerly St. Luke’s Lifeworks) shelter in Stamford on the second Sunday of the month. The menu is e-mailed to all the volunteers and each person who can make something that month replies. Contributors only volunteer when they are able.

A lovely meal is served for about 15 women. Usually the menu consists of a meat or chicken, starch, veggie, salad, rolls, soda and dessert. The women at the shelter always get excited when they see us. They say we make the best food. (We take great pride in our meals!)

Join us! You can do it as infrequently as you wish. You can have a child join you. It’s a great lesson. On the way home you will experience that elated feeling of having done a mitzvah! Please contact Judy Katz or 203.322.3083 or by email at
