Social Action

Caring Committee – Give Help/Get Help

The Caring Committee serves as a support to and by Bet Torah members who are ill, isolated or in need. Please feel free to reach out to caring@bettorah.org if you are in need of support or would like to help support our congregants.

Please stay in touch with us regarding your personal health concerns. If you self-quarantine or are directed to do so by health officials, it is extremely important that you contact Seth at syoung@bettorah.org, Carol at carolsiege@gmail.com or Rabbi Brusso at abrusso@bettorah.org as soon as possible. We wish everyone health and ease during this trying time. We hope our efforts to stay connected offer solace and support.

Shabbat Meal Program

Bet Torah families have hired Chef Rene Leon to make Shabbat meals for congregants who are isolated, especially vulnerable to COVID 19 and physician families who are giving so much during the pandemic. We are looking for sponsors and volunteers to make deliveries. Click here to see how you can help.

Community Service Committee

For urgent needs like donating blood and medical supplies, and donating food to our community partners, and supporting healthcare workers, please click on Social Action Committee.

For more information please contact Michele Posner at communityservice@bettorah.org

Social Justice Committee

The needs are greater than ever among our immigrant neighbors. Click here to find out how you can help.

For more information, please contact Elaine Gloth Merker at socialjustice@bettorah.org.

Journaling @ Bet Torah

Bet Torah is introducing a new initiative to provide everyone – adults, college students, teens and kids – with a fresh creative outlet, as well as to develop a kind of record of our community’s experience during this challenging moment in time. Every week or two, a prompt will be offered for your reflection and written response. Your work can be of any length and style…prose, song lyrics, maybe a haiku? There are no rules here! You can choose to journal only for yourself or share it with the larger community. If the latter, we would just like your permission to edit and post to our social media/web site for the community to enjoy.

Please email your entries to Rabbi Sacks at journaling@bettorah.org.

Ok, to kick things off, here’s the first prompt:

May 27, 2020: Write a letter to your younger self. What do you know now that you wish you had known at an earlier point in your life, with ’earlier’ being thirty years ago or last month. Do you have advice, wisdom, knowledge for younger you at a specific moment in your life or just in general? If you choose, think about how this experience of the pandemic has changed or influenced your perspective on the past.
