At Beth Jacob Synagogue, we offer many opportunities to engage within our congregation and with the larger community around us. Volunteers cook and serve meals through the community dinner project. Participants in the social action committee discuss pressing social issues and ways to foster change. The Planning for Aging Group studies issues related to aging and develops means to support members of our community in the latter stage of life. And throughout it all, we engage with each other by providing occasions to gather and socialize.
