Shir Tzedek Social Advocacy

  • Since 2005, we've been active members of the Greater Boston Interfaith Organization (GBIO), a coalition of religious communities and other groups working towards progressive public policy on issues such as income tax reform, health care cost, and criminal justice.
  • As members of coalitions formed with other synagogues, we are involved with initiatives that address problems such as gun violence prevention and economic inequality.
  • Acting to Reverse Climate Change (ARCC) is a Shir Tikvah initiative created to educate the community, form connections with other climate change activists, and mobilize our efforts to take effective action. The mission of ARCC is to deepen understanding of how climate change impacts us, to create connections among climate change activists, and to mobilize the Shir Tikvah community to take action to reverse climate change honoring the Jewish value of protecting the earth and all its inhabitants.
