Barnert Temple's Social Action Committee

Social Action at Barnert is kind of like breathing.  It's not an option. It's part of everything we do. It's part of who we are and keeps us connected to the world around us. In Judaism, the practice of tikkun olam (repair of the world) is a mitzvah (a commandment). Our Social Action committee helps us fulfill this mitzvah by raising awareness and educating our congregation about issues of social justice and the environment, both locally and globally. The Social Action Committee is one of the largest and most active committees at Barnert. Participants represent a variety of interests, ages, geographies, etc.  Social action cuts across all groups within our community and creates special ties within our congregation.

Join us for one of our regular meetings.   
Our doors are always open.   
If you are interested, or just curious, let us know.  You never know what might inspire you!  You might find the mitzvah tattooed on your forehead!
