About Social Action

Bet Aviv's Social Action programs aim to energize and actively engage congregants to make a difference in our community locally and globally. All participants are invited to meet annually to review existing programs and develop new ones. Typically we have over six local initiatives and one-two international initiatives in any given year, designed to make our community and the world a stronger, healthier and better place to live.

These highlight what both one-time or regular volunteers can contribute to individual activities ranging from our quarterly team at the Our Daily Bread Soup Kitchen" and annual High Holiday food drive to our monthly group of volunteers for the Route One homeless shelter and quarterly Adopt-a-Road Cleanup. We also sponsor projects like "Nothing but Nets" to prevent the spread of malaria in Africa
