Heal the World

Helping HandHealing the World at WJC through Social Action and Environmental Awareness


WJC’s Social Action Committee is actively involved in numerous projects that afford individuals of all ages the opportunity to get involved. Our projects range from one-time events to ongoing programs. The Mitzvah Card, which is distributed on Kol Nidre, is our main source of volunteers for these activities. We hope you will get involved! Please feel free to contact the chair of the Social Action Committee, Eve Edelman Russ at [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns.


We also contribute to healing the world by becoming more aware of our environment through various activities sponsored by the Green Committee.  The mission of this committee is to educate our congregation on how to sustain and respect the environment.  Read here on ways we can change our habits and eat more humanly raised meat and sustainable food, all in keeping with the spirit of Jewish law.
