The mission of Project Open Hands is to energize and involve the members and friends of Shomrei Torah Synagogue to improve the lives of people in our local communities, in Israel, and across the world.
Did you know that Shomrei Torah, for the past several years, has been providing one of the city's largest contingents of weekly volunteers to Koreh L.A., the childhood literacy program run by the Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles? In fact, according to the Jewish Federation's records, it appears that Shomrei Torah in the 2015-2016 school year was No. 1 among all of the city's synagogues and temples, with 13 STS members serving as Koreh reading mentors.
Currently, Shomrei Torah members are pursuing ways to help reduce homelessness in Los Angeles. Come join us on June 8 at 8:00 pm in learning about Imagine LA. We are partnered with STS Sisterhood in a major collection for the Jewish Family Services Family Violence Project.
