The SAC is an open committee that encourages congregation members to participate in planning, implementing, and staffing many programs that work towards tikkun olam in our world. Below are some of the activities we have right now that are ongoing and can use more volunteers.
Congregation Beth Israel was one of the founders of Lift UP and has continued its support since the beginning, nearly 40 years ago. Lift UP works to reduce hunger and improve the lives of low-income residents of Northwest and Downtown Portland. These are the invisible poor who are housed but lack sufficient resources for many basic necessities. Lift UP collects and distributes food and sponsors educational and community building programs that encourage healthy life choices and promote socialization.
Volunteer opportunities are available for individuals and teams. Current needs include:
Please contact Abby Mulvihill if you are interested.
For more information about any of these volunteer opportunities or to sign up to volunteer, call Program and Communications Coordinator Tracy Manaster Alifanz in the CBI Main Office at (503) 222-1069 or email SAC@bethisrael.com.
