Social Action Programs

And God spoke to Moses, saying: "Tell the children of Israel to bring me an offering; you shall accept offerings for me from every person whose heart moves them (to give). (Exodus 25:1-2)

Around the same time that the Israelites received the Torah, they also received instructions to build a place of worship that they could carry with them in their travels. This structure was to be the dwelling place of God's presence. God's first commandment concerning this dwelling place was that the entire community be invited to participate in its construction.

Congregation Shomrei Emunah seeks to build in our community a dwelling place in which God's presence may reside. We do that through our traditional value of Tikkun Olam, repairing the world. Please look in our weekly flyer or weekly cyberletter for opportunities to give the "offering"; to take part in social action, which comes from YOUR heart, towards the construction of a better world.
