RiSe Up! Social Action
ABOUT OUR RISE UP HOUSE OF SOCIAL ACTION: Reform Judaism motivates us to repair physical, economic and
social brokenness wherever it exists: in our families, our local
communities, and our nation, Israel, the Jewish Diaspora and the world.
Rodeph Shalom provides a gateway for volunteers to contribute energy,
talent and resources in pursuit of social justice. We build bridges
with other faith groups and organizations. Through our advocacy,
actions and philanthropy, we pursue the work of Tikkun Olam.
When, as individuals or with our fellow congregants, we take action,
learn about the circumstances of others, respond to crisis, or advocate
policies for social justice, we are working to heal the world, to grow
as individual Jews and to build relationships in our community. At
Rodeph Shalom, our social action work is coordinated, planned and
promoted through our RiSe Up! House of Social Action. This Committee
serves as a forum for ideas and energies and as a conduit for action to
bring our community together. Through RiSe Up! our congregants can share
their interests and activism. RiSe Up! evolves as needs and issues
change. Any member of our community can propose and spearhead a program
and as we throw our communal weight behind that idea, it grows and
thrives. Our tradition calls us to RiSe Up! to the challenges in our
community with creativity, with deep conviction, and with our faith in
one another and in God.
We are excited to have our tzedekah bench with its monthly collections.
