To ensure the health and safety of our congregation and guests during the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, we have moved our activities online. We look forward to gathering in person when we can do so safely. Until then, join us online for our many services, classes, and events.

Social Action

 

We are committed to Tikkun Olam, or “Repair of the World.” The Social Action Committee engages the entire Beth Israel community in activities that include consulting with B’nai Mitzvah families about Tikkun Olam projects, academic tutoring in Chester, annual clothing drives; participation in the Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service; preparing and serving meals to the homeless; special Tikkun Olam speakers at Shabbat services; food drives supporting local food banks, working with Hebrew School students to prepare lunches for needy children, advocating for gun control and victims’ rights; advocating for immigrants, screening films several times a year on Jewish and social justice themes, and presenting our  Friend of the Community Award. The committee meets monthly. Anyone in the congregation is welcome to join.
