Congregation Beth El has long and proudly devoted itself to social action concerns. While Jewish law and tradition demand it, we joyfully partner with our neighbors and collaborate relationships, advocate, educate and open our minds, hearts and hands to those around us. This mission is made possible by engaged and caring congregants, the support of our Board of Directors, our active Hebrew School and the guidance of our Rabbi.  Easing hunger and homelessness, in particular, are challenging pursuits we embrace as a congregation. We invite you to join our caring community as we strive to make life a little easier for those less fortunate.

Beth El’s  Social Action Outreach is dedicated to involving our congregants in the work of Tikkun Olam, repairing the world.  

The Social Action Outreach Committee welcomes your help, as a committee member or a participant in any of our programs.

We are part of an AMAZING interfaith program that brings local people experiencing homelessness to area churches for a warm, homemade meal. You can prepare from 1-10 meals at home and bring them to our collection point. 

Wheels to Meals upcoming dates
June 25      July 14           July 30

Cook one or more “to go” dinners for homeless people. It can be something simple like meatloaf, or chicken and some veggies. Drop off your ready-to-eat meals at 129 Knightsbridge Drive at 4:15 pm that day. From there the meals go to the pick up location, St Johns, and then directly to drop off locations for people in need to enjoy by 5:15 pm.

Tikkun Olam Resource Library

Beth El Embraces Tikkun Olam:

From its beginnings Congregation Beth El has been proudly dedicated to upholding Torah and Constitutional laws which promote and protect human rights regardless of race, religion, gender, and sexual orientation. These underpinnings of equality and justice help sustain the Jewish people and our entire nation at large. At the same time, we strive to respect and safeguard our planet’s precious natural resources from pollution and waste. Given these multiple challenges facing us today, our Social Action Committee will post reference materials here for our membership who wish to learn more about how we can make our world a better place.
