Fall 2020 Update

Temple Sinai’s social action efforts continue as strong as ever despite the pandemic! Temple Sinai members joined many of the various protests and vigils against systemic racism and racial injustice this summer. Get Out the Vote, Gun Violence Prevention Group, and Washington Interfaith Network initiatives are ongoing.

Temple Sinai is committed to work for justice in education, housing, immigration, jobs and other areas. We have signed the Brit Olam of the Religious Action Center for Reform Judaism (RAC) and committed through the RAC’s Urgency of Now Campaigns to protect the rights of transgender students, defend the rights of immigrants at risk of deportation, and reform the criminal justice system and end mass incarceration. Through the Social Action Committee, Women and Men of Reform Judaism and other groups and committees, we engage in direct service, advocacy, and organizing on these and a host of other pressing issues.  Below are ongoing projects and opportunities for tzedakah and tikkun olam:
