Community Outreach

Since the late 1960s, our Temple has made an annual contribution for membership in New Bern’s Religious Community Services (RCS), which operates a soup kitchen and shelter.
The Sisterhood makes annual contributions to the local newspaper’s Empty Stocking Fund.
Many of our members are active in Civitan and community service organizations.
Adult and children’s Sunday School groups from area churches and students from the Community College frequently visit our worship services. Schools and community groups frequently invite one of our officers or other members to speak to them about Hanukkah, the Holocaust, or to team-teach a Bible study program.
When invited, we participate in appropriate interfaith services..
Our Temple participates in the annual tour of homes and houses of worship in New Bern’s Historic District each April with Temple and/or Sisterhood members serving as tour guides.
