Social Action Committee Print

The Temple Social Action Planners met and discussed taking on a variety of projects submitted by Temple Beth Israel members. The projects were narrowed down to the following:

  • Religious Action Council participation by all Temple members
  • Provide dinner and activities for children at McDonald House
  • Prepare food and deliver it to the homeless in conjunction with the Salvation Army using their canteen truck.
  • Provide assistance to congregants needing a periodic friend to visit, assist in helping them get to appointments or otherwise assist them in improving their quality of life.
  • Continue the recycling program at the Temple.
  • Assist the schools in mentoring students through the CCISD Mentoring Program.
  • Potential Mitzvah Day.

One project will be a group project designed and implemented by our young members.

The group believed these projects were high quality and within our capacity to effectively complete.

The key ingredient to our effectiveness is YOU—we need your help to help plan and complete these projects. We ask that you do the following:
please look over the list and find a project that interests you call Debbie at the Temple Office 361-857-8181 and let her know which project(s) you are interested in volunteering to help and
enjoy helping others.

We will contact you soon after. Your help is crucial to the Temple’s social action success.
