Social Action Committee- “Reform Jews are committed to social justice. Even as Reform Jews embrace ritual, prayer, and ceremony more than ever, we continue to see social justice as the jewel in the Reform Jewish crown. Like the prophets, we never forget that God is concerned about the everyday and that the blights of society take precedence over the mysteries of heaven. A Reform synagogue that does not alleviate the anguish of the suffering is a contradiction in terms.”
–Rabbi Eric Yoffie, speech to the UAHC Executive Committee, 2/98
The Committee will help educate the congregation on matters of social/political importance to the Jewish community as well as provide meaningful volunteer activities for young and adult members.
