Social Action

Volunteering of one's time and expertise is not only a recognized Jewish value, but one that is highly prized in our Temple community. The concept of Tikun Olam (repairing the world) reflects the Jewish values of Justice (tzedek), Compassion (chesed) and Peace (shalom), and has come to symbolize the quest for social justice, freedom, equality, peace, and the restoration of the environment. It calls us to repair the world through social action and thoughtful interaction with the world and the people around us. Tikun Olam recognizes that each act of kindness, no matter how small, helps build a better world.

Opportunities for Tikun Olam are numerous and diverse. Our members are encouraged to lend their hearts, souls, and minds to the needs in our community that most interest and inspire them. Beyond the immense satisfaction of assisting in organizing a program or helping an individual, volunteering is the ideal way to meet other members of our Temple Beth Am community. Some of the opportunities focus on internal (temple) programs and functions, while others focus on the community at large. Newcomers to South Florida or just to Beth Am will have an opportunity to meet people with common goals and values. The best way to get involved is to SIGN UP, and contact one of the chairpersons to discover available opportunities for involvement.

Bikur Cholim

(Hebrew: ביקור חולים‎; "visiting the sick"; also transliterated Bikur holim) refers to the mitzvah (Jewish religious commandment) to visit and extend aid to the sick.
 
Bikur Cholim is one of the important deeds included in Gemilut Hassadim—the performance of loving kindness.  It means “caring for the sick” but there is much more that we can do.  It is also one of the many mitzvahs we are commanded to do.
 
We have formed a Bikur Cholim committee to reach out to members who are ill or recovering from surgery.  We would like to connect with these members with a card or a phone call and let them know we care.  We need your help!  Please let us know if you, your family member, or dear friend is in need and would like support from the Bikur Cholim. 
 
If you are interested in joining this committee or get more information please call the Temple office at 954-968-4545 or contact Nina Finkel at
