5782 Special Focus Local Community Activism

Special Focus 5782:
Local Community Activism

If not now, when? How do you give back to your community?

In 5782, the Social Action Committee highlighted the importance of volunteering and engaging deeply in our local community.  On Social Action Shabbat, we heard from Agudas members about how and where they volunteered!  By learning each others' stories, and the history of our own city, we saw the good our action did to repair at least one small corner of the world.
