Social Action Committee

The Social Action Committee is responsible for engaging the members of Congregation Beth El in tikkun olam (repairing the world) through tzedakah/charity and social advocacy projects.

Our projects involve putting Jewish values into action through helping others, taking care of our planet, supporting Israel and advocating for justice and human rights.  Volunteers help create and organize projects and promote them throughout the synagogue community.

The Social Action Committee also works with the Navasky Religious School children to help them plan projects for their Bar/Bat Mitzvah and with the Nitzan Nursery School to run tzedakah projects.  These projects have included a toy drive for the Norwalk Emergency Shelter, making Rosh Hashanah cards for the residents of the Jewish Home for the Elderly, running blood drives, and delivering Thanksgiving baskets for the kosher food pantry at Jewish Family Services.

For more information, please contact the office at 203.838.2710 or by email.
