Know that you want to engage in collaborative, innovative change efforts to heal the world but don’t know how to get involved?
Temple Emanuel’s justice committee is flexible in responding to congregants’ interests and passions. We currently focus on helping refugees, eliminating homelessness, and preventing gun violence, and we always welcome new ideas. We named ourselves Na’aseh (from Na’aseh V’Nishmah “We will do and we will listen” Exodus 24:7) to capture our impulse to act!

Help some of Los Angeles’ most vulnerable populations, those without homes. Participate in this Lunch Drive and/or Emergency Community Drive for our fellow Angelenos. Make 10 sack lunches or more and drop them off every Sunday morning. For drop off locations and times reach out to Michelle Azar at MichelleAzar@me.com
We Make Democracy Work
Temple Emanuel continues to be a proud member of OneLA-IAF — working with partners across Los Angeles County training new leaders in civic engagement to create a more just city. This year, One LA is focusing on immigration issues, the housing and homeless crisis, gun violence, and voter registration.

Mobilizing the community to end the cycle of family homelessness and poverty
Imagine LA helps local families transition out of homelessness. Every two years, we partner with a family to help set them up for long-term success, breaking the cycles that cause people to fall back into homelessness.
If you have skills in budgeting, working with children, or are just a people-person who wants to help, contact Debra Carnow at email@example.com.
