Social Action Committee

We have established a new Social Justice Committee and would welcome all who are interested.   The Congregation has joined the multi-faith Good Faith Network which is organizing thousands of residents of Johnson County to have an impact on local justice issues surrounding housing insecurity and establishing an emergency Johnson County Mental Crisis Center.  This organization’s work culminates in a presentation to the head of the Johnson County Commission and is attended by thousands of members.  We have also officially joined KIFA, Kansas Interfaith Action which is a Kansas wide multi-faith advocacy organization.  If you want to be a part of Social Justice at TTCBJ please consider joining us. You can contact Leea Clark for more information at Rabbiadmin@bnaijehudah.org.

Join us every 3rd Monday to create 125 PB&J sandwiches for Micah Ministries on Independence Boulevard. This is a time-honored tradition that is hallmarked on one of Klein Collection murals. We are happy to bring it back post-pandemic! Sign up for one or all!

Keeping People Warm

If you love to sew, knit, or craft, please consider creating adult items for Care Beyond the Boulevard (CBB). These items will be delivered to houseless individuals across KC. We are seeking adult sized (medium or larger) handmade hats, gloves, scarves, blankets, and shawls. A collection box will be in the Mitzvah Room at B’nai Jehudah. Questions? Contact Barbie Rogoff at bjrogoff@gmail.com.

We will drop off the items to CBB every 3rd Monday of the month so if you have scrap yarn or material, please help us put it to good use.
