How Will I Change the World This Year?

Isaiah 58:5 reads: “Is this the kind of fast I desire, a day of merely depriving one’s body? Is it not the sharing of your bread with the hungry, the bringing of the wretched poor into your home, or clothing someone you see who is naked, and not hiding from your kin in their need?”

The [T]Be Involved Social Action Committee encourages you to participate in our social action programs. Events are subsidized by the Chico Bomchel Memorial Social Action Fund at Temple Beth-El. Thank you for your support.

Tisha B’Av Social Action Opportunity

The holiday Tisha B’Av occurs Aug. 10. If you can’t make it to services, there are plenty of ways to make the lessons of the holiday present in your life, like donating to Donnie’s page. Donnie formerly frequented Highland Plaza, when it was home to the Western Market, and sold candy from the back of his wheelchair, all while using a speech assistance device to communicate. He is a true inspiration whom we have the opportunity to help.
