Our temple is dedicated to Tikkun Olam, repairing the world, through social action. Our vigorous focus on social action helps make Temple Solel a special place.
  • Through services and religious studies, we strengthen ourselves, but…
  • Through Tikkun Olam, we strengthen others. Our new home and ecumenical partner, Grace Presbyterian Church, has many of our same social action activities. Together, we combine efforts and provide greater support to communities in northern York County South Carolina.

Some of the great organizations Temple Solel serves include:
  • The Fort Mill Care Center. Our biweekly food drives, capped by the annual Yom Kippur collection, allowed us to contribute over 2,200 pounds of food for needy York County residents. Please bring food staples and personal hygiene supplies to services. We will give out bags and list of requested donations at Rosh Hashanah. Before Yom Kippur congregants can fill the bags with their donations. On Yom Kippur the bags and the donation will be collected. For a full list of donations click here.  
  • Community Café. We help setup, cook, and serve free lunches once a month, a project run by the Lake Wylie Lutheran Church in Tega Cay. This is usually on the second Friday. Contact or mention your interest after services.
  • Bethel Shelter.  We help setup, cook, and serve free meals once a month for 50 or more homeless men. The shelter is located in Rock Hill at the Bethel United Methodist Church.

Contact or mention your interest after services. For more information on these and other worthwhile activities, please contact our Social Action committee chairs, Steve Yaffe and Carol Hahn at Find out how you can start repairing the world with us!

Even one person can make a difference!


We recently provide an opportunity for people to learn about our temple at Rock Hill Pride Festival.

We have started a Manna Bags program, a way to help the homeless. Manna bags are filled with food, water and other necessities and can be given to a homeless person. Members can pick these bags up at each service.
