Our Mission Statement: The Social Action Committee at Beth Israel is part of K’lal Yisrael, the entire Jewish community. When we pursue tzedek (justice) and perform mitzvot (commandments) to translate the words of Torah into the works of our hands, we act as partners with God in tikkun olam (repairing the world).

Members are welcome to volunteer for committees. For more information about meeting times and dates, please contact the staff liaison. Your participation is appreciated. Information is available here: https://cbisd.org/about/committee-chairs/

Hunger Project

Beth Israel provides food, funding and volunteers for this program. Cash donations are also needed. To volunteer, visit: https://cbisd.org/getinvolved/hungerproject/


Social Action Network

Our Social Action Network is designed to empower each and every congregant, providing a platform for you to initiate and execute programs both on and off our campus that resonate with our collective values and priorities. Through this network, we envision a community actively involved in the hands-on work required to make a positive impact. Under the capable leadership of Jason and Robin, the Social Action Network encourages individual congregants to take charge of programs. Whether it’s gathering inspiring speakers, managing logistics, or detailing the execution plan, each congregant involved becomes an integral part of the process. The network ensures that the details of these initiatives are not just confined within a select group but are openly shared with the entire community.
