Making a Difference Together
“You are not required to complete the work, yet you are not allowed to desist from it” – Pirkei Avot, 2:21
The mission of TAE’s Social Action Committee is to encourage the education of and participation in understanding the local, national and global human needs around us. Whether the need is immediate or ongoing, we seek to develop and perform meaningful programs and acts of tikkun olam (healing the world) which respond to those needs. We strive to perform mitzvot reflecting the ideals of Reform Judaism and welcome involvement from all temple members.
