Social Action – Tikkun Olam

The purpose of the Social Action Committee is to assist and facilitate the congregation’s participation in acts of tzedakah (charity) and Tikkun Olam (“repair of the world”). As Jews, it is our obligation to help create a just and caring community and our social action activities are geared towards advocating worthy causes and participating in community service. The Committee’s objectives are to identify and help meet the many needs within our Fair Lawn Jewish Center/Congregation Bnai Israel community, assist charitable organizations and focus on relevant local, state, national, and international issues of concern.
