Social Action

.Our Social Action Committee helps Temple Beth David to fulfill one of the tenets of our mission statement, working toward Tikkun Olam, "healing of the world". We do this by working on ongoing projects such as food drives, volunteering in the Downtown Evening Soup Kitchen, informing and educating our congregants about important issues which affect us as Jews and as citizens of the world. We help our youth to see the effect that their involvement with Social Action can achieve through B’nai Mitzvah individual and class projects, and programs involving the entire religious school community.

JCARR 

Temple Beth David members are actively involved with the Jewish Community Alliance for Refugee Resettlement (JCARR).  JCARR is a partnership of six New Haven-area synagogues and the Jewish Federation of Greater New Haven. As a co-sponsor for Integrated Refugee and Immigration Services (IRIS), the principal refugee resettlement agency in Connecticut, JCARR helps new refugee and immigrant families resettle in our community. Since December 2015, JCARR’s Coordinator and numerous volunteers have welcomed one asylum-seeking and five refugee families who fled their home countries to escape persecution and violence. TBD has been involved for just over a year, and has already helped to resettle two families currently in the New Haven area, as well as assuming leadership of the household task force,
