The wide remit of our committee currently embraces Environmental Issues, Interfaith Dialogue, Disability and Accessibility, Poverty and Homelessness and Outreach to Jewish Communities.
For the upcoming Interfaith Walk see the current News listing.
The Social Action Committee meets about five times a year and welcomes new members who would like to support our current programme or bring new ideas to the committee for development and support. If you would like to join the committee or sit in on a meeting to see if it is for you, please contact Sue Bolsom SocialActionLJS@gmail.com or via the LJS
Conscious of the difficulties of day-to-day existence of many refugee families, asylum seekers and their children, the collection hamper in the foyer has for many years provided food staples, nappies and toiletries to the Bayswater Family Centre, which supports families on the very edge.
The LJS is a Fair Trade synagoogue. All coffee served comes from companies that promote a fair return to their suppliers.
In the run up to the Copenhagen United Nations Climate Change Conference 2010, we were proud to have hosted an Interfaith debate entitled 'Living Well with Climate Change?' Conversations with Green Gurus; with Paul Dickinson, Greenhouse Gas Emissions Watchdog and Carbon Disclosure Project CEO, John Elkington, World Expert on Sustainable Development, John Grant, author of the Green Marketing Manifesto, and chaired by BBC presenter Edward Stourton.
The LJS supports the very small Progressive Jewish Community of Vinnitsa in Ukraine and to strengthen our efforts in helping this community we hosted a Chavurah supper at which Paul Janes spoke of the very successful ongoing relationship between Radlett & Bushey Reform Synagogue and their twinned community of Grodno.
Under the auspices of The Learning Circle, JCore, the Jewish Council for Refugees held a four-part series of talks on Tuesday evenings throughout the LJS November Social Action month on Jews, Refugees and Asylum Seekers.
