Social Action has been a priority at Holy Blossom Temple since the mid-1800s. Projects in our Temple over the years have included women’s rights, civil rights, interfaith activity, support of migrant farm workers, Vietnamese boat people, Toronto homeless people, people afflicted with AIDS, and much more. Our work has involved advocacy, direct services to those in need, education, raising the awareness of our own community about the needs of vulnerable people all over the world. The guiding principles behind our actions are tzedek, tikkun olam, and g’milut Hasidim–to pursue justice and to repair the world through acts of loving kindness.
