Launched in 2018, Justice at the Center is Shaare Emeth’s congregation-based community organizing initiative that aims to address the root causes of injustice.
When we look around at the world as it is, we know that this is not the world as it ought to be. There is pain, despair, poverty, injustice and brokenness. As Jews, we are called upon to partner with God in fostering justice and repairing the world in all the places that we can. Our texts call upon us to care for the stranger, the orphan and the widow – traditionally the most vulnerable members of society.
We can offer this kind of care through acts of direct service, which are important as they allow us to provide help to others in an immediate way. Congregation Shaare Emeth is proud of the many direct service opportunities that we offer to our members.
