Feeling concerned about immigrant rights? Health care? Climate change? Another pressing issue of the day? Our country faces a new reality, and the need for tikkun olam, world repair, is enormous. Join us as we launch Beth El's Rapid Response Team! We are proud to have signed Reform CA's Brit Olam: The World We Want Covenant, and are mobilizing in order to be ready to respond to the Torah’s call to be rodefei tzedek–pursuers of justice–and assert the importance of eternal Jewish values: equity, fairness, and the dignity of every individual.

We'll come together at Beth El on Thursday, April 27 at 7:30 pm in order to kick off our Rapid Response Team, and to learn about and immediately engage in action around some current California legislation. Rapid Responders will opt in to receive periodic texts about immediate actions in our community and email updates for legislative and community based events and actions in CA. Bring your questions and your ideas to help get us launched! For more information contact Yael Bloom (ybloom@sonic.net).
