Social Justice

Social Justice

To make the world a better place – to help cure the imperfections in our world. To recognize that we are not an island unto ourselves and that there is a moral imperative to care, to help and to support those who do cannot put bread on the table, or obtain proper healthcare, or have access to clean water or air, or perhaps even a roof over their head.  This is the essence of our core Jewish Values. 

If I am not for myself, who will be for me? And being for myself, what am ‘I’? And if not now, when?”

Our Social Justice Project is open to all in our community who seek to learn, seek to be involved, and seek to act.  Please come back to these pages as we initiate our internal dialogue and offer programs and opportunity for action.
