This initiative affords opportunities for members of the congregation to fulfill the Jewish mandate for social justice. Activities serve the dual purpose of tikkun olum (repairing the world) and of increasing awareness and understanding of the social and economic injustices in the community. In recent years, the group has focused its efforts on hunger and homelessness, and addresses these challenges in several ways, throughout the year. Key events include food preparation each month, a Social Action Shabbat and Mitzvah Day, clothing drives, Habitat for Humanity, and the food drive during the High Holy Days.
