SOCIAL ACTION COMMITTEE MISSION STATEMENT

Reflecting Jewish values and traditions, TBI's Social Action Committee strives to promote social justice through education, community awareness and hands-on projects that support at-risk groups. 

CURRENT PROJECTS:

•          Second Chance Last Opportunity, a community grassroots organization in Sarasota that seeks to educate and empower the underserved. We support SCLO  through collection of food and basic necessities and fundraising.

•          Presentations about social justice issues to our Temple members and the larger community.

•          Future projects to be determined!

 

THE SOCIAL ACTION COMMITTEE (SAC) IS PROUD TO SUPPORT THE FOLLOWING GOALS:

  • Raising consciousness among our congregation members. 
  • Offering congregation members a menu of projects and programs for their action and support including activities developed at Temple Beth Israel and others originated in the broader community.
  • Building bridges between Judaism and different faiths in order to work toward social justice
  • Working toward the incorporation of Tikkun Olam values and activities as a religious expression by the Temple Beth Israel community
