The prophetic call for social justice lies at the very heart of Reform Judaism. The caring members of our GRS Social Action Committee continually take on projects in order to help those in need, both within our larger community and around the globe. For years GRS has been collecting and cooking food which the members of the Social Action Committee, and more recently, the students of Gen J, have been serving each month at Inspirica. However, our relationship has recently expanded...
I am proud to say that GRS is now "in partnership with Inspirica." Far beyond what is often termed as a "shelter," Inspirica provides a host of services for those who are, as the motto expresses, journeying from "homelessness to home." Inspirica's beautiful, modern facility is located on nearby Franklin Street in Stamford, close to the Greenwich border. We are seeking volunteers, adults and mature teens, who can lend their skills in the following areas, including:
- offering children's recreational activities
- helping prepare those who endeavor to enter the job market
- in other various realms, including resume writing and interview skills.
Additionally, we warmly welcome those willing to share their unique ideas and talents in ways not aforementioned, to support those adults and children currently living at Inspirica.
Our GRS Social Action Committee invites you to be a part of this important mitzvah. Please let us know your interest by contacting Laura in the GRS office.
Let us share our hearts and God given gifts to make this a better world!
Rabbi Andrew R. Sklarz, MSW
