Emanu-El Driven to Care

Yearly collection drives to support our local community

Share your bread with the hungry, and take the wretched poor into your home; when you see the naked, clothe them. (Isaiah 58:7)

In Judaism, the mitzvah of Tzedekah (giving to those in need) is not considered a good deed or a generous act—instead it is considered something that should be done simply because it is the right thing to do. At Emanu-El we want to help you achieve this goal through our partnerships with various local non-profit agencies who care for others during their time of need.  An easy way to do this is to donate specific items to our monthly collection drives featured on this page. Below are instructions on how you can participate.





The Tzedek Council is excited to start a new partnership for the new year with the Homeless Prenatal Program.  Throughout the year there will be opportunities for congregants to support the work and families of HPP. 

The Tzedek Council is grateful to be working with the Homeless Prenatal Program (HPP) this year.
