Community Service

 

The Jewish Federation of Howard County partners with organizations within the greater Howard County and Maryland to create hands-on volunteer opportunities throughout the year. Volunteer sites have included Days End Horse Farm, Harmony Hall, and Grassroots Shelter. StepForward with the Jewish Federation of Howard County and join us for tikkun olam (healing the world)!

"I really enjoyed my experience with the Federation. I was especially motivated by the volunteer opportunities. I'm eager to participate in more community service projects, and think it's a great way to build on ongoing legacy!"

-Rachel Burrows,

  • Bookworms

    In 2015 we initiated a volunteer reading program at Stevens Forest Elementary, a Title I School. On second Thursdays of the month, volunteers bring a gently used or new book to read to first graders, which they then donate to the class library. Bookworms is open to Pomegranate and Lion donors.
