The Social Justice Action Committee offers opportunities for WJC families to carry out mitzvot within the WJC community, the broader Larchmont/Mamaroneck community, and throughout the world. Our work is multifaceted, as we assist those in need while simultaneously aiming to address broader, underlying causes of injustice in our society.
This new year provides a new opportunity to take part. We are seeking to build a diverse and multi- generational coalition of WJC members interested in Tikun Olam, repairing the world.
Please consider participating in our programs and events throughout the year. Signing up is an opportunity to show interest, not a commitment. A committee member will reach out to you with further information. Learn more about the opportunities below.
We look forward to expanding and deepening our work with your help!
