I, the Eternal One, have called you to righteousness.
from Gates of Prayer
At the heart of our social action work is a commitment to bring into practice the core social justice values of Judaism and to pursue tikkun olam — 'repairing the world'— through individual and group action. The Social Action Committee offers projects in two important areas: Tzedakah, emergency relief for the most needy members of our community, and Tzedek, social advocacy projects which address root causes of injustice, inequality and environmental distress.
We are guided by the principles of Reform Judaism, the expertise of the Religious Action Center for Reform Judaism, and the URJ's Commission on Social Action. We also work to build relationships with other faith communities in support of our common desire to create a more peaceful, more just world. The Social Action Committee welcomes new members and invites you to share ideas, know-how, and experiences to help us deepen and broaden our social justice work.
Judea Reform participates in s a variety of ongoing social action projects; and, just about every month, you can find organized groups working toward this important part of Judaism. So take a look at the possibilities, and then check our calendar for times when you can find other people working to repair the world. Alone or together, every hand can help.
