We are committed to Tikkun Olam, or “Repair of the World.” The Social Action Committee's projects include annual clothing drives; participation in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service; preparing and serving meals to the homeless; special Tikkun Olam speakers at Friday night services; food drives during Passover and the High Holy Days; preparing lunches for needy children through Mitzvah Mania, advocating for gun control and victims’ rights; and presenting the Friend of the Community Award. The committee meets monthly at BI and the homes of our members. Anyone in the congregation is welcome to join.
Thank you to everyone who donated items, baked cookies, and helped out at Mitzvah Mania on May 6th, 2018. The Mitzvah Mania team was able to make hundreds of bagged lunches for hungry children.
At evening services on Friday, March 14, 2014 at 8:00 p.m., Congregation Beth Israel paid tribute to members Stu Pittel and Susan Klein for their many years of commitment to feed the hungry through their work on the food service, conducted under the auspices of the Social Action Committee (SAC). A dinner honoring Stu and Susan will precede services. Please watch for forthcoming congregational emails to learn more about how you can join in for this celebration.
