What is a synagogue partner?

Our partners play a vital role in raising awareness in their communities about the prevalence of hunger, promoting and participating in anti-hunger advocacy and integrating tzedakah for hunger relief into holiday observances, community events and lifecycle celebrations. 

Our partner synagogues mobilize their congregations and their communities to help us end the injustice of hunger.

How can you partner with us?

There are many ways for synagogues and Jewish organizations to partner with us! Some communities participate in our semi-annual holiday appeals at the High Holy Days and Passover and include MAZON in other Jewish holiday observances and lifecycle events. Others use our educational materials and activities in their day and religious schools. Congregations are organizing MAZON Walks to End Hunger and discussing books from the MAZON Bookshelf to start community conversations about ending hunger in America. Many are leading the charge on behalf of hungry people in their communities by drafting new legislation and advocating for changes in hunger-related policies and procedures in their state and participating in national advocacy campaigns. Whether your synagogue is engaging with MAZON for the first time or looking to deepen your existing relationship with us, we can provide the resources and support to help your congregation make a real impact in the fight to end hunger.

Partner Story: Temple Am Echad

Lynbrook, New York

It’s not often that we see social justice and social action projects combined, but Temple Am Echad has successfully bridged them into one activity, effectively engaging all ages of the congregation.

For the past three years, the synagogue, located in Lynbrook, New York, has hosted the “MAZON High Holy Days Manna Food Drive” in an effort to raise awareness about hunger in their community (as well as the United States and Israel) and engage their community in the fight against hunger. Throughout the project this last year, they collected 4,500 pounds of food for their local emergency food network.

Temple Am Echad

Food drives are typically considered a “social action” activity, but Temple Am Echad has taken it a step further by adding social justice education and advocacy. Youth learn about hunger (and the injustice of it) and then participate in a paper plate campaign, writing letters to local legislators expressing their concern for others in their community and urging policy makers to protect federal nutrition programs. The adults in the congregation hear from MAZON board member, David Napell, who shares the reality of hunger that exists in their community.

Throughout the drive, Temple Am Echat makes sure to reinforce the participants in many different ways:

  • Announcements are made in the bulletin, website and through social media
  • The congregation hears about hunger, the Manna Drive and the work MAZON does
  • Packets with paper bags and MAZON donation envelopes are sent out to all congregants
  • Kids are sent home with a paper bag (that they decorate) and if they return it with food, they receive a certificate and are later honored at a Shabbat service
  • Many thanks are given throughout the process to all who help make it happen

It’s wonderful to start the new year with a healthy dose of tzedakah and tikkun olam! We’re so grateful for their support, year after year!
