Social Action Committee

The mission of the Social Action Committee is to be the central resource for Jewish social action to both temple organizations and individuals in the temple who look for ways to make a positive impact on the world. Our committee strives to provide a Jewish framework for our congregants to perform tikkum olam. Our committee is always looking for fresh ideas and new members. Please contact the committee chair.

In choosing and developing projects:

  • We try to be nonjudgmental, progressive and take on projects that are trans- denominational.
  • We support pluralism, inclusiveness and tolerance
  • We believe that family and community are the central building blocks and support for the temple community
  • We believe in the importance of Israel in Jewish identity and larger community

The Social Action committee projects are made possible through temple budget, funding from the Martin Ames Memorial Fund, and individual member support.
