Tzedakah Box Donations at JRC

As Reform Jews, we are called to engage in the work  of tikkun olam, improving the world in which we live. One way to participate is through Tzedakah.

All donations made via the Tzedakah Box are designated for a variety of local, national, and global causes that reflect our Jewish values.

September and October Tzedakah Box

L’Shanah Tovah! This new year, do a mitzvah for your community and celebrate your tzedakah by feeding the hungry.

God commands us to "share [our] bread with the hungry… —Isaiah 58:7

Help families in need by making a donation through our virtual Tzedakah Box. All donations made will be given to Urban Ministries of Durham (UMD) and The Inter-Faith Council for Social Service (serving Orange County), long standing partners of JRC.


Urban Ministries of Durham connects with the community to end homelessness and fight poverty by offering food, shelter and a future to neighbors in need. Urban Ministries of Durham is the only public shelter for single adults in Durham (and the back-up shelter for families) who will assist anyone in need, regardless of race, ethnicity, religious belief or non-belief, sexual orientation, gender or gender identification, or disability.

Inter-Faith Council for Social Service mobilizes our community to address homelessness, hunger, and economic disparity.  A non-denominational social service organization, IFC offers emergency shelter for homeless men, women and children. The Community Kitchen serves hot meals to the public three times a day, every day. Project Homestart supports 33 homeless families with transitional housing and case management services.
