Social Justice

Make A Difference with a Temple Israel Tikkun Olam Project!

Temple Israel’s Social Justice Committee has a new look, a new direction, and new opportunities for congregation members to get involved in social action projects and programs. Many of the committee’s long-standing activities are still in place. Click here to see what your congregation is already doing and whether there’s an existing project run by the committee that interests you. The Social Justice Committee is also an incubator for new social activism projects, programs and events open to all interested Temple members – even those who have no interest in joining the committee!

We offer our congregants a wide range of social justice activities, make it easy for them to participate, and help project organizers make their efforts successful. Specifically, the committee proposes programs and projects suggested by committee members and others within the temple family, recruits program and project leaders and participants, supports the development and management of those programs and projects, and helps publicize them.

Email Jeanne Jacobs, Social Justice Committee Chair to offer your own ideas for new projects and programs, or to join our social justice email list.
