Central Reform Temple is deeply committed to the Jewish principle of Tikkun Olam, “the healing, repair and transformation of our world.” We reach out to the broader community with volunteer opportunities for active involvement in the work for justice and peace. Since 2009, the Maurice Tobin K-8 Boston Public School in Mission Hill has been our primary Social Action partner, involving outreach activities throughout the year.
Celebrate Chanukah’s Continuing Light with a Gift for Tobin School Students
For the past several years the CRT Tobin School Chanukah Fund for student uniforms has assisted families to purchase shirts, skirts, pants and sweat suits. Thanks to the generosity of temple members our 2016 collection provided clothing for many K-8th grade students who were designated by school staff.
Please consider a donation this year in your own name or to honor or remember family or friends. Donors and those named by congregants will receive a CRT letter recognizing the contribution, explaining this annual holiday effort to assist our local public school partner with the gift of blue school uniforms.
Tobin Principal Toledano, staff and students send their thanks to CRT for the continuation of the clothing program and for all of our Social Action outreach to their school in Mission Hill.
Please send checks to our 15 Newbury Street address or make your donation
online at our website.
CRT Social Action at the Tobin School
Thanks to our temple team at the 9th Annual Tobin School Clean-Up for their work cleaning and planting on May 20 in Mission Hill. Led by Tannus Schlam and Larry Peters, our enthusiastic volunteers enhanced the outdoor spaces for the school and local community, participating in this meaningful and fun day of Tikkun Olam.
