Social Action

You are not expected to complete the task, but neither are you free to avoid it. — Pirkei Avot 2:21,20

Tikkun Olam has always been a defining cornerstone at Temple Beth-El, reaching beyond the walls of our local community. As Jews, we are responsible for changing the world, one person or piece at a time, bringing us closer to wholeness, peace and equality.

Join us throughout the year as we work together to rebuild our world. We have new programs to help our local community.  

Due to COVID-19, most of our Tikkun Olam opportunities are taking place virtually or through a drop-off of needed items. Please email Shaina for more information about current Tikkun Olam opportunities.

Social Action Team

The Temple Beth-El Social Action Team was formed in the fall of 1995. We sponsor many community based projects, including collecting food and paper goods for the Ark during the High Holidays, helping at the Jewish United Fund’s Uptown Café, annual blood drives, collecting holiday toys for children less fortunate than our own and helping our Yad L’Yad partner community in Russia.

We recently expanded to monthly activities to help our local community too. Some of those activities include Orphans of the Storm, Feed My Starving Children, and Bernie's Book Bank.
The Social Action Committee looks forward to continuing these activities and expanding our outreach to other activities which interest you. Please tell us your ideas. Thank you very much for your participation—past, present, and future—in doing these mitzvot.
