Bikkur Cholim Committee
Adult Education Committee
The activities of our Social Action Committee express our community’s deep commitment to tikkun olam, healing our broken world. The committee has expanded its mission to increase our participation/partnership in projects impacting the New York metropolitan area Jewish community and the NYC Metropolitan community as a whole. We are a participating congregation in Manhattan Together, a coalition of faith-based organizations committed to social justice in New York City, and hold annual Hunger Shabbat and Human Rights Shabbat programs.
The SAC engages our members in environmental projects and alerts them to topical social justice causes. WES members respond generously to our various food drives and collections which are thematically related to the holidays. In addition, we support Ethiopian-Israeli high school students with academic expenses and the NACOEJ lunch program. Click here for current programs.
