Social Action has always been an important pillar of Temple life.
The Social Action Committee generally meets the second Wednesday of each month with a group of active individuals who work to provide programming opportunities in areas of political advocacy, community involvement and volunteerism. We bring issues of Tikkun Olam forward for consideration and invite the congregation to participate in a variety of meaningful projects throughout the year. Members are invited to join our committee or take part in any particular project in which they may have an interest.

Brit Olam – Covenant with our World
“Study alone is not enough; our tradition demands action.”
Temple Emanu-El is the first Canadian congregation to become part of a North American network of Reform congregations dedicated to a world of compassion and justice through acting together on issues of moral urgency.
Signing on to this network allows us to publicly reaffirm our commitment to meaningful social justice work, grounded in our sacred and enduring Jewish values.
