Social Action Committee

Social Action Committee

Through Torah, Tefillah, Tzedakah, and Tikkun Olam (study, prayer, righteous deeds, and repairing the world) Temple Bat Yam works to strengthen our congregation, our community, the Jewish people and the State of Israel. Our projects address the needs of many different groups, such as the poor, the homeless, the hungry and organizations that provide services for others. The committee’s focus is caring and making lives better, no matter what race, religion or location. Grounded in our tradition’s commitment to help heal the world, Temple Bat Yam’s Social Action/Tikkun Olam committee coordinates ongoing charitable, humanitarian and social action work within the Temple and the larger community. Its efforts include (but are not limited to) consumer education, ending the genocide in Darfur, fundraising for humanitarian projects in Israel and the United States, food and shelter for homeless people within Broward County, AIDS Awareness Programs, ending Domestic Violence and the Bikkur Cholim Caring Community group which coordinates regular visits to congregants who are ill at home or are patients in local nursing homes or hospitals.

Membership in the Social Action Committee is open to all congregants who are willing to take an active role in one or more of our projects. For ongoing opportunities to participate contact our Social Action Chairperson, Lyn Saberg at shameynj@aol.com. We welcome you to join us!
