Central Reform Congregation

In October, 2016, CRC launched a family mitzvah program to give families and their children ages 5-12 (and siblings) opportunities to participate together in Tikkun Olam projects. Mensch Makers meets monthly, on Shabbat or Sunday afternoons, for an hour and a half. Each month, a different family helps coordinate the event. Recent Mensch Maker events have included: creating New Year Bags for Seniors, building brown bag dinners for St. Louis Winter Outreach, making blankets and toys for dogs and cats at the Humane Society, sorting food and making trail mix at the Harvey Kornblum Jewish Food Pantry, singing and visiting seniors at Royal Oaks Nursing and Rehab, and gardening at the J’s Garden of Eden.
