The Temple Beth-El Social Action Committee was formed in the fall of 1995. We sponsor many community based projects, including collecting food and paper goods for the Ark during the High Holidays, helping at the Jewish United Fund’s Uptown Café, annual blood drives, collecting holiday toys for children less fortunate than our own and helping our Yad L’Yad partner community in Russia.
We recently expanded to monthly activities to help our local community too. Some of those activities include Orphans of the Storm, Feed My Starving Children, and Bernies Book Bank.
The Social Action Committee looks forward to continuing these activities and expanding our outreach to other activities which interest you. Please tell us your ideas. Thank you very much for your participation—past, present, and future—in doing these mitzvoth.
