Derech Adat

Mitzvah Day 5779

We had an amazing day and carried out good deeds to respond to the needs of the vulnerable in our community! Thank you to all who participated!



Derech Adat is a multifaceted effort at Adat Ari El to engage in Tikkun Olam on all meaningful levels. Through using our hands, our intellect, and our resources, we make a priority of identifying injustices in our world and working in partnership with our broader community to right them. From debating and taking positions on issues that need to be addressed in society to serving our community with volunteer outreach, we take our commitments to repairing our world seriously. We strongly believe that acts of love can overcome acts of ignorance and hate and as a unified community, Derech Adat is the way we express that sentiment. 

November Action

At this time the Pantry shelves are well-stocked with everything but ready-to-eat canned soups. Please concentrate on adding soups so that the North Hollywood Interfaith Food Pantry can balance out their inventory. The best soups for clients are ready-to-eat canned soups, not condensed cans nor dry packages.

If you would like to fill a paper shopping bag with items on a "shopping list," please click here for the list. You can drop off your canned soup or full shopping bag any day of the week. Please deliver your donations to the lobby at Temple Beth Hillel, 12326 Riverside Drive, North Hollywood.
