Social Justice Community

Statement of Purpose

The purpose of the Congregation Shir Tikvah Social Justice Community (CST SJC) is to advance the cause of Tikkum Olam in the world. We seek to educate ourselves and others as we act to promote issues of social justice based on Jewish and democratic principles. This pursuit of justice must be a collaborative effort to include as many people as possible from the CST and wider communities.

For those who are Twitter followers, follow the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism @TheRAC and please follow Congregation Shir Tikvah on Facebook. FB is a closed group, meaning you can find it on FB but only get involved if you ask to become a member of that group. Please ASK!

The CST SJC has selected water affordability/water justice as its focus for the coming year. Events and information will be posted as available.

  • The Detroit Jews for Justice  "Illuminating Water Justice: A Hanukkah Gathering in Detroit" event was a success in raising awareness of our group and of the issues surrounding water affordability. More events will be posted here and on our Facebook page and in the Schrier.
