Tikkun olam — "repairing the world" is a hallmark of Reform Judaism
as we strive to bring peace, freedom, and justice to all people.

mobileloaves1Service and Advocacy is who we are and what we do here at Temple Beth Shalom. We have two committees, Community Service and Advocacy, that organize a number of wonderful, ongoing projects, as well as periodic events, throughout the year. 

The Community Service Committee meets monthly to fine tune projects we're working on. We encourage you to join us! Your participation in Service and/or Advocacy at Temple Beth Shalom will allow you to help heal the world, make new friends, and feel really good... promise!
