Social Action Mission Statement
Hillel says, “If I am not for myself, who will be for me? But if I am only for myself, who am I? If not now, when?” Ethics of the Fathers, 1:14
If not you…then who?
The mission of the Social Action Committee is to make Judaism’s commitment to the principles of Tikkun Olam an integral part of everyday life within the congregation. The committee organizes projects and events that educate the congregation and provides meaningful experiences through which we can repair our world on many levels; locally, globally and in our own Jewish community. The SAC welcomes all Kol Ami members to be involved in their own way, whether by giving, volunteering, fundraising, and in-kind service or any other act of Tzedakah.
Many of us are yearning to do still more. Our Social Action Committee (SAC) is looking for new members who want to make a difference.
It’s coming! Mitzvah Mentors program start date.
Mitzvah Mentor Program will start Oct. 21st. Students will have the opportunity to really dig into a mitzvah project and be helped by adults here at CKA.
We’ve got the worksheets and binders, books and folders for project ideas, mentors, even stress relievers ready for the big day.
Mentors, your time will come in early November when we match you with a student so you can get to work helping to make a difference. (There are only 8 students so only a few of you will be needed.) We can’t wait to see what our b’nei mitzvah students have to share with us.
