Social action cares

 

What does social action committee do?

On a daily basis, many of us serve and give of ourselves without fanfare or recognition. We are a caring and loving congregation that lives up to the highest ideals of Judaism. Social action has always been an integral part of congregational life at Beth Sholom Temple. Our activities have exemplified the Jewish values of community engagement, service, justice, and peace. The role of the Social Action Committee is to stimulate and support the performance of mitzvot by our members, especially those that help others beyond the Temple community. See the box below for some of the events that we have organized and/or participated in over the past year.
