Judaism and Social Action
As a Movement we are profoundly aware that it was Judaism that taught the world that God is the embodiment of the ethical and that we serve God not just through prayer and ritual but in the way we behave towards our fellow human beings.
The following resources explore some key concepts in the Jewish imperative for social action, ranging from our ancient texts to modern voices.
Social Action: Get Involved
Please follow up on the work of these organisations, which we support, in the way that most resonates with you. And of course so many of our synagogues are involved in social action projects making a very real difference to their communities, to vulnerable people and to wider society.
