Steven Eidman, DDS- The Social Action Committee of Kol HaNeshamah

A graduate of New York University College of Dentistry, Steven Eidman, DDS, works as director of operations and management at BestCare Family Dental. When not at the Jackson Heights, New York, facility, Steven Eidman, DDS, serves as president of the Social Action Committee of Kol HaNeshamah.

The New Jersey synagogue Kol HaNeshamah caters to conservative members of the Jewish faith in the Englewood and Tenafly communities. The only such egalitarian temple in the Englewood/Tenafly area, Kol HaNeshamah provides individuals with many opportunities in which to connect with God and to aid those in need. Over the past 17 years, it has played an important role in the lives of others.

Meaning “Voice of the Soul,” Kol HaNeshamah subscribes to a belief in tikkun olam, or “repairing the world.” Its Social Action Committee oversees numerous initiatives that allow people to put this idea into practice. Every Yom Kippur, it asks teenage and adult followers to make a tikkun olam pledge, wherein they agree to help the community through actions such as volunteering at nursing homes, participating in Adopt-a-Highway or Riverkeeper programs, or donating blood. On Rosh Hashana, children run new year’s services for Englewood Hospital patients. Another endeavor involves spending two weeks benefiting a homeless shelter by providing cooks and overnight staff. Additionally, Kol HaNeshamah takes part in the United Jewish Appeal’s Mitzvah Day by performing a talent show at the Englewood Actors’ Home.

Additionally, he has served as the president of Kol HaNeshamah, in Englewood, New Jersey.

Meaning “Voice of the Soul,” Kol HaNeshamah was established in 1997 as Englewood’s and Tenafly’s only Conservative, egalitarian synagogue. Located on the grounds of St. Paul’s church, Kol HaNeshamah is an egalitarian synagogue that follows a small group style.

The synagogue holds Shabbat services that are highly engaging with discussion, prayer, and readings from the Torah. Rabbi Fred Elias participates with members in offering teachings and chanting from the Torah during these services. Giving prominence to the concept of “tikkun olam” (healing the world), members of Kol HaNeshamah volunteer their time delivering food to the homeless, working at shelters, and visiting nursing homes on many occasions. Kol HaNeshamah also offers several classes and events to adults, children, and teenagers to support further Jewish learning.
