Yom Shabbat, 16 Kislev 5776


"Justice, justice, you shall pursue." (Deut 16:20)

Beit Haverim promotes, facilitates and shares in diverse social action activities in response to the core principle of Jewish ethics: Tikkun Olam - mending the world.

Beit Haverim has a longstanding commitment to social action – setting in motion the ideals and values of our traditions through deeds of justice and compassion. Our activities include organizing various drives throughout the year and providing support to needy members of our community through targeted programs. 

As we pursue the important work of creating a better world, we strengthen the relationships within our congregation and broaden our connections to other communities. In doing so, we develop a better awareness and understanding of our responsibility to each other. We show that we care, mentor our children and create meaningful change.  All are invited and encouraged to participate in the work of social justice.
