Social Action

“If I am only for myself, who am I?”

– Hillel, Pirkei Avot, 1:14

Fabrangen makes Community Service and Social Action a central part of our community life. We do this in conjunction with the DC JCC Community Service Department and Jews United for Justice.

Our community service projects include:

Hunger Action Project

  • We prepare meals for distribution to the homeless and low-income population of Washington, D.C. We meet at the DC JCC (16th and Q St NW) about once a month. Dates for food preparation are posted on the website calendar.

Days of Service

We also volunteer for specific projects such as:

  • Everything But the Turkey Thanksgiving food preparation at the DC JCC.
  • December 25 Day of Service. We serve meals and provide entertainment at the Father McKenna Center for homeless men. This allows the regular staff to spend Christmas Day with their families.

If you would like to be part of Fabrangen’s community service program, please contact Debbie Goldman or Lloyd Wolf at socialaction@fabrangen.org.
