Social Action

When our ancestors received the Torah at Sinai, they responded in unison: Na’aseh v’Nishma: All this we will do and we will hear. According to Midrash, this show of our faith merits the salvation of the entire world. Judea Reform Congregation is a signatory to the Brit Olam, covenant with the world. The Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (the RAC), created the Brit Olam to foster congregational work on Tzedek (justice) in addition to the Tzedakah (charity) that many engage in. Read our full story below.

Social Action at Judea Reform

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 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.
