Social Action

NSS Beth El's Social Action Committee helps individuals and families work together to perform meaningful mitzvot that benefit both our Jewish Community and the larger community around us.  We believe that congregants of all ages grow from the experience of volunteering and giving.  We look for programs that emphasize the core values of tikkun olam.

Take A Bite Out Of Hunger

We are currently providing daily snacks and breakfast items to elementary schools in Highland Park.  This could NOT happen without the generosity of our entire Beth El community.
