Social Justice at Kol Ami

Tzedek Council

Transforming the World Using Jewish Values

Since our founding, Congregation Kol Ami has aimed to live up to our nameā€”to be a "voice of the people," speaking out and working to build a world of justice and peace. 
 
From our own backyard, creating care kits for the homeless for PATH and collecting food for SOVA, to supporting a partner community in Guatemala with visits and donation drives, we regularly host volunteer actions that directly benefit those in need.  
 
 
 
 
We strive to be advocates, lobbying elected officials with partners like RAC-CA to enact legislation and implement budgets that reflect our values. During the 2018 midterm election season, we participated in a civic engagement campaign to register voters and make sure that Kol Ami would be a 100% voting congregation.
 
Rabbi Eger and Rabbi Chaiken regularly preach on issues of justice and morality from our bimah during services, and we frequently host guest speakers and public officials in our sanctuary. 
 
There are many ways we continue to pursue justice each and every day at Kol Ami, and we would love to have you involved! Email socialjustice@kol-ami.org to find out more!
