Social Action at Newcastle Reform Synagogue
The generous response of the community to recent Mitzvah Days and a long history of support to various charities provide a sound basis for the establishment of social action at NRS.
The rationale for this approach is that if the community can focus on a particular group and establish a pattern of giving throughout the year, then this would be a much more effective way of identifying and addressing need
A small group has undertaken to find out more about agencies working with asylum seekers and refugees and to feed the findings back to Council.
The four projects below are those that NRS would like the community to support and on Mitzvah Day we hope you will attend NRS and hear directly from representatives of these Charities.
