Social Action/Social Justice Committee

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