Our major social action programs:

HIHI – Huntington Interfaith Homeless Initiative – This program, started by the Family Service League, provides shelter to a group of homeless men each night during the cold winter months in a number of different churches & synagogues in the Huntington area.  We will be hosting the men for 7 nights this winter, 6 Wednesday nights, the night of Christmas, and we need volunteer and supplies.  Please click on the link on the left for more details.

HELP HJC FEED FAMILIES AND CHILDREN IN NEED ~ SUPPORT THE JEWISH NUTRITIONAL NETWORK (JNN) AT HJC –  For years the dedicated volunteers of our JNN have been there to help feed those in need.  In the midst of these economically challenging times, the need dramatically has increased with JNN now preparing meals for around 200 individuals and lunches for over 40 school children.  The increased demand for food for those in need has strained the JNN’s finances. PLEASE HELP the JNN continue to provide a meal to a family or child in need.  DONATE TODAY AT http://www.hjcny.org/donations/mitzvah-opportunities/ or by mail to HJC.  Click on the link on the left for more information.

National Donor Sabbath Month: Organ, Eye and Tissue Donation Awareness ~ November  is designated as National Donor Sabbath Month.  HJC’s Social Action Committee is working with the New York Organ Donor Network along with numerous houses of worship across the Greater New York metropolitan area to share the powerful message of life-saving donation and transplantation.  Click on the link on the left for more details.
