Social Action

Our rabbis teach us that one of the pillars of Judaism is "gemilut hasadim", performing acts of loving kindness. The mission of the Temple Beth Shalom Social Action Committee is to provide opportunities for "gemilut hasadim" and to encourage congregants to get involved and participate in these opportunities. We especially encourage direct involvement in those opportunities to help those in need that are in our Needham community or in the Boston area.

Here is a sampling of our Social Action Projects. We hope you will join us - it's great to volunteer!

  • K'Sharim Dinner We continue a TBS tradition of providing a Shabbat dinner and service for the K'Sharim group from JBBBS (Jewish Big Brother Big Sister). K'Sharim is a group of Jewish adults with developmental disabilities who meet regularly for social events.
