Social Action Committee

Our Social Action Committee's current main focus is Hunger/Nutrition and Child Poverty. We are supporting various organizations and programs concerned with relief efforts in these fields.

Click here for information on specific programs and be sure to watch for updates as more projects are added through-out the year. Many projects are supported through the generous donations given to our Mitzvah Fund.

In addition to year-round & annual hunger/child poverty relief efforts, such as our food drive, cooking & serving meals in local shelters, participation in the local CROP walks, our annual Yiddish Songfest benefitting Durham Urban Ministries, we also have a knitting chevra who not only make hats, sweaters, & other items for those in need, but also collect other clothing as well. We hold an annual Blood Drive in cooperation with the Red Cross, and participate in many other programs of local and international agencies which positively affect the lives of others.

Beth El is a member of Durham Congregations in Action and the Interfaith Council of Chapel Hill.
