Hebrew Tabernacle Social Action

Hebrew Tabernacle has a long history of commitment to social action efforts – from Civil Rights marches in the 60’s, to speaking out for social justice and the rights of immigrants across the nation and the world.  We believe that as stewards of Judaism this is part of what we do.

Social Action
As Rabbi Eric Yoffie, said so eloquently in a speech to the UAHC Executive Committee, February 1998: “Reform Jews are committed to social justice. Even as Reform Jews embrace ritual, prayer, and ceremony more than ever, we continue to see social justice as the jewel in the Reform Jewish crown. Like the prophets, we never forget that God is concerned about the everyday and that the blights of society take precedence over the mysteries of heaven. A Reform synagogue that does not alleviate the anguish of the suffering is a contradiction in terms.”
