Tikkun Olam, the healing of our world, is a central Narayever value. These are not just words we espouse, but an ideal we live and strive for in nearly every facet of the synagogue. The Social Action Committee works to advance this ideal within our community in many ways:
- We create volunteer opportunities for our community. Please join us by participating in Shabbat services for the elderly at Kensington Gardens or Castleview-Wychwood nursing homes or serving food (and a kind ear) with homeless and “at risk” people through the Out of the Cold program.
- We partner with other committees such as Adult Education and Celebrations to ensure that our programming enriches both our participants and our wider community.
- We profile individual members who have made great volunteer contributions to inspire and engage one another
- For those mitzvoth we cannot perform directly, we raise funds. We support initiatives that address the needs of Toronto’s downtown Jewish community, promote social justice in Israel and protect communities facing discrimination and anti-semitism.

We invite you to join us in any of the above activities, donate to our fund or join our committee. To find out more about our committee, please contact Shayne Robinson, Social Action Chairperson at firstname.lastname@example.org.
