Social Action Events

Over the next five months we plan to deliver programs and actions that will demonstrate what Sanctuary Congregation means at Sherith Israel.  Intense, strategic work by the Social Action Committee will focus on putting key programs in play. Highlights of the fall and winter program are listed below. A full schedule will welcome ideas across the congregation, beginning with the Yom Kippur gathering.
