Social Action

B’nai Tikvah is a community grounded in Jewish values acting together to change the world in a positive way. We encourage members to carry out the mitzvah of Tikkun Olam, repairing the world through actions that will make the world a better place.

Members are provided an opportunity to affirm the congregation’s ethical and social justice responsibilities to our communities by participating in social action, and social advocacy, and by representing the temple in local community outreach programs concerning social and humanitarian issues.

Social action projects include: social action Shabbats, annual Mitzvah Day, voter registration drives, collecting personal care items for women’s/homeless shelters in the area, food drives for Canton and Randolph Food Pantries, combatting anti-Semitism, and serving as the South Area distribution site for Jewish Family Table, the only kosher food pantry in the area. In our resolve to be more welcoming to all, we will be implementing training on inclusion.

B’nai Tikvah participates in CHAI – Community, Helping, Action, Involvement – the South Area Social Action Collaboration, working with other local Jewish organizations to help the greater community.

For more information or to get involved, contact one of the Co-chairs listed below.

Chesed Committee

The Chesed Committee is part of the temple’s Social Action Committee.  It serves to support congregants in need of compassionate care, such as those with serious illness or limited mobility, etc.  The committee coordinates the receiving of meals, transportation to temple services or events, rides to medical appointments, assistance with daily activities, or provide a friendly ear or visit. If you or someone you know is in need of these services, please contact the temple office, the rabbi, or the cantor. 

If you would like to assist with these worthy endeavors, please contact Ann Hartstein or Phyl Hewson:
