Social Action Committee

The Dor Hadash Social Action Committee strives to embody the Jewish teaching “tzedek, tzedek tirdoff,” צדק צדק תרדוף, which means: “Justice, justice you shall pursue” (Deut. 16:20).Judaism teaches that there are three major ways to pursue a more just and equitable society, Tzedakah (Charitable Giving), Avodah (Service) and Tikkun Olam (Repair of the World). We are dedicated to addressing all three over the course of each year. Certain projects are ongoing while others evolve in response to current events, partnership opportunities or the passions of our members.

Tzedakah – Charitable Giving

We sponsor various tzedakah collection campaigns in the congregation and beyond.

Avodah & G’milut Hasadim – Service & Acts of Loving Kindness

We volunteer in the community with ongoing service in important communal organizations.

Tikkun Olam – Repair of the World

Through social action and a focus on social justice, we work to build a more equitable, safe, and inclusive world for everyone. We partner with other organizations and with Dor Hadash Religious School students when possible. We encourage and welcome others to support our efforts.

Dor Hadash offers a member-led, Reconstructionist alternative.

With an institutional membership with the Kaplan Center.
