The mission of our synagogue is not only to serve the needs of our members and to deepen their Jewish lives through learning and prayer, but also to fulfill the obligation to heal and repair our world.
At Congregation L’Dor V’Dor we are committed to a number of social action projects.
Hunger and Homelessness on Long Island
We continue our efforts to address hunger and homelessness on our very own Long Island.
Interfaith Nutrition Network
Our congregants contribute canned food and gently used clothes as well as monetary donations to our annual holiday drive. These items supported the INN's Mary Brennan Soup Kitchen and in particular the purchase of Thanksgiving turkeys for those in need.
Saint Hugh Project Hope
Our 7th graders and fellow congregants pack lunch bags and sandwiches that are delivered to the hungry and poor in the Huntington Station area. We cook meals for those staying in the church's shelter. We staff a Sunday supper that serves dinner to 300 people.
A Jewish Response to Hunger. Mazon supports efforts to combat hunger in the United States as well as in Israel and the world. It grants money to grass roots organizations, such as the INN and Island Harvest.
Interfaith Assembly on Homelessness and Housing
For instance our parents and students learn from a man who was homeless and living on the streets of New York for over ten years.
These are but a few examples of our efforts to bring healing to the surrounding world.
The meaning and purpose of our synagogue is to help us reach beyond ourselves and to fulfill the vision of our prophets, to heal the brokenness in our world.
