Act

Beth Shalom offers a variety of individual and group opportunities that allow members to practice Tikkun Olam through the Mitzvah of Tzedakah, acts of loving kindness and the promotion of social justice. Below, we've highlighted just a few ways that you can get involved in some of these efforts.

The Caring Committee (Hineinu) is dedicated to assisting with the physical, emotional, and spiritual support and well-being of our Beth Shalom community. We strive to help Beth Shalom members celebrate joyous events, as well as embracing members who are going through difficult times. This committee supports the Beth Shalom community in performing mitzvot such as: visiting the sick (Bikur Kholim), comforting the mourner (Nikhum Avelim), comforting the distressed (Nikhum Metzukah), and welcoming a new baby (Shalom Tinok).

Social Action Committee

The principal mission of the Social Action Committee is the pursuit of Tikkun Olam, repairing the world. This committee provides individual and group opportunities that allow members to pursue Tikkun Olam through tzedakah, acts of kindness and giving back to our community. Such opportunities include: the Yom Kippur Food Drive, the annual Turkey Drive, the annual Blood Drive, Mitzvah Day and Meals on Wheels, just to name a few. During our Mitzvah Day, families work with local charities to improve our community and in turn improve the lives of those in need.

Social Committee

The Social Committee creates, plans, and organizes a variety of events which allow our members to spend time together socializing and strengthening friendships and provides the opportunity to meet new friends, as well. Their work is an integral part of creating a fun, engaged, and dynamic community here at Beth Shalom. Events have included a family Hanukkah party, an adult Purim party, Got Culture, and other family game nights.

Landscaping Committee

Sometimes, doing a Mitzvah is as simple as helping us at Beth Shalom keep our grounds beautiful. The Landscaping Committee is responsible for everything outside. They create plans to enhance the outside beauty of our temple and are responsible for maintenance of the Beth Shalom grounds, including: watering plants, mowing the lawn, and any maintenance of outside playground equipment.
