Social Action

The world stands on three things: Torah (Learning), Worship and Acts of Loving Kindness

Our social action committee meets monthly on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:30pm. Please join us at a meeting to lend some assistance. 


If you are following the news from Ukraine, you know that hundreds of thousands have been forced to flee their homes. Some have crossed the national borders, mainly into Poland. Others have moved to safer areas within Ukraine. There is urgent need for humanitarian assistance on a huge scale. We can help.

HIAS is already helping refugees both inside and outside of Ukraine. The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee is specifically working to help the sizeable Jewish community of Ukraine. USA for UNHCR is also an organization that helps refugees everywhere, and has an emergency effort to help the Ukrainians. The World Union for Progressive Judaism, of which our URJ is a member, has set up a WUPJ Ukraine Crisis Fund.  We encourage you to consider supporting one or more of them at this critical time

Food Drive

We collect food year round - there is a bin in the lobby for food donations. Please do not leave opened or expired food. The food banks will not accept this and we have to throw these items away. 

Thank you letter from JFS for our food donations

Mother's Day Gift Drive

Please begin thinking about donations for our Mother's Day gift drive in support of the Women Aware shelter in New Brunswick. We will be collecting new, unwrapped gifts for moms and babies. In April you will find our collection box in the lobby.

URJ Religious Action Center (RAC)

There are many in far-off corners who also need help. If you are not familiar with RAC, you might be surprised how often it's within our power to be of some help. We encourage you to keep up with what the URJ's Religious Action Center is doing world-wide.
