MIDNIGHT RUNS ORGANIZED BY TINW BROTHERHOOD

Temple Israel Brotherhood typically organizes two to three Midnight Runs per year, each on a Saturday night, from the late Fall through the early Spring. Our Midnight Runs bring clothing and provisions to the homeless in Manhattan at night. Students from the TINW Center for Jewish Learning often participate in Midnight Runs as part of Bar / Bat Mitzvah Service Projects, or for their academic school service hours. 

Next Midnight Run:  Dec 2020 & FEB 2021

1:00 PM -  Please come help us sort clothing and make sandwiches for the nighttime Run.
8:30 PM -  Volunteers depart TINW.  We need volunteers to pass out clothing and provisions to the homeless in Manhattan and one adult volunteer to drive their vehicle with more items and participants.

Make a difference in someone's life today!

Donate warm men's clothing and meatloaves the week before to provide for the Midnight Run.

Learn more about Midnight Run by contacting Andrew Bieber, our Midnight Run Coordinator, and by reading What is Midnight Run, written by Steve Samuels.  Please read Sought After Items for more information about the types of clothing and other items we need to collect in preparation for a Midnight Run.  If you are interested in participating, whether you go on the Run or not, we need help at the Temple at 1pm on the day of the Run to sort clothing and make sandwiches. You'll enjoy the process.

Jewish Renewal In Poland

Jewish Renewal in Poland was the subject of the recent Brotherhood Breakfast. The Brotherhood's relationship with the Jewish Renewal started over 15 years ago when we had a direct channel to a reform congregation in Warsaw. Since then, an umbrella organization in California has been fostering Jewish renewal in several Polish cities. The movement is attracting Polish citizens who knew their families were once Jewish and are now re-establishing their Jewish roots...some through Jewish conversion, some having Jewish weddings, some celebrating Shabbat and participating in their local temple events.

Many of brotherhood's breakfast attendees wanted to know how they could help...the speaker (Rabbi Haim Beliak) said they certainly need our economic support. To this end, if you would like to support this effort, please send your check made out to TINW-Brotherhood and mark in the note on the check "Jewish Renewal". The Brotherhood will batch all the contributions and forward them on to the Jewish Renewal in Poland.
