Religious Action Center (RAC) Social Justice Committee

Stacy Goto - (732) 804-4664

The RAC* Social Justice committee at Temple Shaari Emeth works to educate, inspire and mobilize our congregation to advocate for social justice. Our goal is to organize, in a non-partisan manner, to ensure that our Reform Jewish values, including pikuach nefesh (saving lives), chesed (compassion), and tzedek (justice) are included in policymaking as our local and state leaders work to build a more just, compassionate and equitable society for all New Jersey residents.

The RAC Social Justice committee is a sub committee under the Social Action committee. Social action refers to direct service activities such as food drives, clothing drives, providing shelter for the homeless, etc. Social justice refers to activities that organize people to effect change that can help mitigate the need for direct service activities. This can include advocacy work or other efforts to promote systemic change.
