INTERFAITH HOSPITALITY NETWORK
Four weeks throughout the year, we provide groceries, meals and volunteer our time to work at Grace Place which offers temporary transitional housing without cost to women – with or without children – who are in transition from homelessness.
PARTNERSHIP WITH AVON-MIAMI CHARITIES
Each year at the High Holy Days, we partner with Avon-Miami Charities to make 1800-2000 shelf-stable lunches that are then distributed to homeless shelters across Cincinnati.
CINCINNATI SANCTUARY CONGREGATIONS COALITION
Temple Sholom has partnered with several congregations and faith traditions around Cincinnati. Together, through the generous donation of space by Clifton UMC we are able to offer sanctuary, funding and volunteer time to a family in the midst of citizenship application
Our team meets every other month to cook (Fridays) and serve (Sundays) meals for the Over-the-Rhine Kitchen serving more than 5,734 poor and homeless individuals in the greater Cincinnati area. To learn more, contact: Michaele Jordan at Temple Sholom.
We collect personal needs items, food, clothing and school supplies for the Valley Interfaith Food and Clothing center. This is our neighborhood resource for the nearly 20,000 individuals in need in our area.
BARBASH VITAL SUPPORT CENTER
We collect holiday related items and kosher food for the Barbash Vital Support Center in Clifton. They serve the whole Jewish community as a resource for counseling, case work, social service support, and an active, kosher food bank.
QUEEN CITY KITCHEN
During the High Holy Days, we collect food and personal care products for the Queen City Kitchen in Walnut Hills. They serve friends and neighbors in and around the Cincinnati metro area. Unlike other soup kitchens, there are no zip code or other requirements to access to services. And ours is a choice pantry – you select exactly what your family needs.
JEWISH COMMUNITY IN ODESSA, UKRAINE
We collect un-used children’s clothing for the Jewish community in Odessa. In the winter we engage in a congregation-wide crotchet/knitting project to create blankets and hats to send to their community as well.
JEWISH COMMUNITY PARTNERS IN NETANYA, ISRAEL
Netanya is our sister city in Israel. Through the guidance of The Jewish Federation of Cincinnati we are able to send needed financial contributions in order to support our sister city.
