Social Action


Beth Shalom has been awarded the 2019 Solomon Schechter Award by the United Synagogue for Conservative Judaism for its work on the Courageous Conversations program!

“THIS is my chosen fast: to loosen all the bonds that bind us unfairly…Share your bread with the hungry, take the homeless into your home…do not turn away from people in need…if you put yourself out for the hungry and relieve the wretched, then shall your light shine in the darkness…The Lord will guide you continually. God will refresh you in dry places, renewing your strength.”
Isaiah 58:6-11

Isaiah says it loud and clear: as Jews we are called to perform tzedakah and deeds of loving kindness. Bring your energy to one of Beth Shalom’s current social action activities. It’s more fun in a group! Most of these activities require only a few hours, some less than that. Find an activity and contact the lead person or the office to participate. If there is an area of social action that you would like to see Beth Shalom involved in, contact the office.
