Social Action

At its December 2021 meeting, the Leadership Council of Beth Hillel Temple unanimously passed a resolution on Black Lives Matter.  The resolution concludes:

"Therefore, Beth Hillel Temple affirms that Black Lives Matter. Our congregation, our Reform Movement, and our community are racially diverse. We honor this and believe that our strength lies in this diversity.  We believe that our Jewish values teach us to work for a just and fair world. 

  • We commit to studying our own biases and privileges, as individuals and within our congregation. 
  • We commit to taking active steps to work against ongoing systemic racism in our communities and institutions. "
