Social Action

Social action/social justice may take a variety of forms:

  • Serving the less fortunate in our community;
  • Contributing resources to a world-wide, national or local relief effort;
  • Advocating for causes which reflect our Jewish tradition, by contacting local or national legislative leaders;
  • Educating our congregation about current issues and events that call for us to respond based on our tenets of Judaism.

Temple Am Echad has participated in the following ways:

  • Collecting food for distribution to local food banks during the High Holy Days and Passover;
  • Informing congregants about current public policy issues which are concerns of the Reform Jewish community.
  • Working in conjunction with the Religious Action Center (the social justice arm of the Reform Jewish Movement), we have written postcards to low-propensity voters (non-partisan).
  • Sponsored a Reproductive Rights Shabbat to educate our community
  • Collected toys to donate to needy children
  • Worked with RAC-NY to help pass the bill Less Is More
