Social Action

Ohev Shalom’s Social Action Team


“The world stands on three things:

on Torah, on service to G-d, and on acts of human-kindness.”

Pirke Avot 1:2



The Social Action Team invites you to join us in our continuing effort to “repair the world,” one of the most important ways to lead a Jewish life. Together, we engage in projects and activities which address human needs, such as food, shelter, and health security, as well as welcoming the stranger, preserving our environment, and building community connections.  Whether by joining our committee or signing up for just one event, please share your talents, energies, and interests with us. 


Ohev Shalom’s mission affirms that our congregation will “open the heart by assuming a leadership role in the performance of Tzedakah, both within the congregation and in the larger community.” If we understand that the performance of Mitzvot is not an option afforded to us, but a commandment incumbent upon us to follow, we will help the Ohev Shalom community to reach toward Tikkun Olam.


Our Tikkun Olam programs for 2023-2024 will address:
