Social Action

Winter 2021

Helping the Homeless of Columbus House

Columbus House provides food, shelter, and warm hospitality to those experiencing homelessness, as well as necessary services, such as case management, referrals to mental health and substance abuse treatment programs, employment training programs, education, health services, and links to housing. This year, during the pandemic, they say their greatest need is for funds for food.

During the month of January 2021, we are partnering with United Church on the Green in New Haven to collect funds for Columbus House. Please open your hearts and give generously so that Columbus House can feed those who are homeless, especially during the cold winter months.

Our goal at CBJ is to raise $2,500. Please use this link to donate, or send a check to the synagogue.
