Tikkun Olam / Social Action

"Thou shalt not be a victim. Thou shalt not be a perpetrator. Above all, thou shalt not be a bystander." -- Holocaust Museum, Washington DC

The mission of the Social Action Committee is to promote activities at the local, national and international levels which support the Jewish idea of Tikkun Olam, Repair the World. The Social Action Committee organizes programs, projects and fundraisers to improve the lives of others in our synagogue, our local area, our nation, and throughout the world.

Social Action Spotlight

Gift Cards for PADS

Please remember those who need a little help during this season. Buy a Manna card or more for our PADS guests and we'll be sure to help brighten their holiday too. Cards for fast food, gas stations, drug stores and grocery stores are best. PADS can also use some grocery cards to help pay for the meals we provide to our guests every Sunday night as well as Walmart and Target cards so we can buy our guests necessities like underwear and socks.
