We believe in putting our Jewish values into action! With collections and drives, volunteer opportunities, our ESL Program at the Don Bosco Community Center in Port Chester, our relationship with Baby Bank and HOPE House, our annual Mitzvah Shabbat, and in myriad other ways, Emanu-El makes it easy for our congregants to give back to the broader community. We don’t just pray for a better world, we make it happen.
When treating the symptom of a problem is not enough, we advocate for policies that can address the root causes of society’s problems. Working closely with politicians and staffers at every level of government, we continue the traditions of the prophets of Israel in advocating for a more just world. And, we do it in a way that allows for diversity of opinion and healthy debate. No matter where people stand on the political spectrum, we can all make our world more whole and more holy.
