2007 Tutoring at Pilgrim



Club Name(s): 

Contact Name: 



The Men's Club has played an integral role in the development and
implementation of Congregation Tifereth Israe1's program to tutor students in the
neighborhood elementary school, Pilgrim Elementary. The tutoring program has been
successful for over 5 years, and what a better way for the synagogue to be engaged in the
immediate community than to help out the young children in the neighborhood.
Former Men's Club President, Larry Smith, took the lead. In conjunction with
other synagogue groups - Sisterhood, Social Action Committee and Youth Groups - the
Men's Club has gone into the inner city school on a weekly basis to work on reading and
math with typically the 3rd to 5th grader classes. The program has been very successful,
and the synagogue is a partner with the school, along with other businesses in the
Columbus community.
