Social Action News

Temple Beth David proudly supports Family Table, a Jewish Food Pantry of Jewish Family & Children’s Services. We contribute jars of peanut butter & canned fruit (low sugar). Collection bins are in both temple lobbies.

A group of congregants from Temple Beth David has been active for some time with a group called Partakers – College Behind Bars.  They have been working with George, an inmate serving a life sentence at a local medium security prison. He is working on earning his Bachelor’s degree.

Partakers supports Massachusetts prison education by coordinating teams of volunteers who mentor inmates as they attend the Boston University Prison Education Program. George likes to write and has written several short stories. He has had a story published by the Freedom-To-Write Committee of PEN New England and has given permission for that story, “Friendship”, to be posted here (appropriate for older teens and adults).   George’s Story
