DONATE TO SUPPORT VACCINE EQUITY

I am Rabbi Jeffrey Schein, a co-chair of Mayim Rabim Congregation's Tikkun Olam committee, devoted to the idea that we create opportunities for holiness through creative Tzedaka in the world. I am also a senior preparing to receive my booster and thinking I'd love to share with you a double chai opportunity for such holiness as a spiritual kavana before or after receiving your booster.

The first Chai is in honor of shmirat ha-guf and the mitzvah of taking care of our own bodies as divine vessels. The Jewish value of hakarat ha-tov (recognizing the good of being able to do this) is one Chai's worth of celebration.

The second Chai challenges us to make sure that we are thinking nationally and internationally in terms of vaccine equity. Below are several organizations devoted to the cause of vaccine equity. A donation of $36 (double Chai) to any of them would be quite meaningful on the occasion of your booster or any other time.

Gavi Covax AMC

Doctors Without Borders

About Us

Mayim Rabim Congregation, founded in 1992, is affiliated with the Jewish Reconstructionist movement. We are an urban Jewish community that comprises people of diverse ages, abilities, sexual orientations, cultural backgrounds, and financial resources. We strive to create and sustain spaces that enhance the practice of Judaism in the contemporary world; to that end, we are a house of prayer, of study, and tikkun olam (the repair of the world). As Reconstructionists, we view Judaism as an evolving religious civilization and claim a shared heritage with all Jews.

We are an inclusive, heymish congregation and we welcome visitors!
