At WRT, we promise to fulfill the Jewish tradition’s mandate to clothe the naked, feed the hungry and care for the stranger and most vulnerable in our midst. We believe that every congregant’s passions and interests can be meaningfully engaged in the task of repairing the world.
• We will educate and inspire our community to make Tikkun Olam a central commitment in our lives
• We will work to create sustainable change by addressing not only conditions of need, but also by learning about and confronting their root causes
• We will respond to local, national, and global concerns. Our clergy, in partnership with our congregants, will identify those causes that demand a Jewish response and advocacy
• We will develop relationships with community and faith-based organizations
The Social Action Resource Committee was created to act as an overarching organization to facilitate the Tikkun Olam mandate of our WRT community. The committee’s responsibility is to serve as a clearinghouse and networking body to connect congregants with social action work at the temple. The group will also be a resource guide for new initiatives and individuals interested in assuming leadership of new groups and projects.
We welcome volunteers! If you are interested in specific projects or opportunities within some of the sections below, please send us an email linked to the contacts listed. More volunteer opportunities and information coming soon.
