Social Action Committee
The Social Action Committee leads Temple Shalom’s commitment to “pursing justice and working together to create a better world” as it is central to who we are as individuals and as community,” (Union for Reform Judaism). Whether feeding the hungry, helping the disadvantaged or raising our communal voices against social or economic injustice; whether focused on community, state national or worldwide inequities. Our outreach efforts provide invaluable physical, emotional, intellectual, and ethical sustenance for all involved.
This year, many of our Temple’s activities made a significant difference in the lives of families in our community. These included:
This year, together with the Caring Committee, we are adding a panel discussion on Dying with Dignity (Jackie Pinkowitz). We are also planning a Black History Month program in February (The Selma March – Now and Then).
Your participation is always welcome. We encourage all temple members to reach out and share your ideas and passions with us. You are invited to attend any or all of the programs to make the world a better place for everyone.
