SOCIAL ACTION & SOCIAL JUSTICE

One of our PTS core values is commitment to community. Because ethics are empty without action, we realize our values by working together to pursue justice, improve our community, and uplift those in need.

Whether you are looking for discrete activities or ongoing engagement, PTS has a way for you  to participate in tikkun olam (repairing the world).

We work from a two-pronged approach: 

Social Action

Direct service to those in need, partnering with social service organizations like  CALL Primrose and Jewish Family and Children’s Service through activities such as Mitzvah Days, food drives, blood drives, clothing drives, toiletry drives, and others.

Social Justice

Advocating for public policy that attacks root causes of inequality and advances Jewish values in our local community, our state, and across the country. Areas of focus have included racial justice, criminal justice, voter engagement, housing affordability, and mental health access and stigma reduction.

We gain support through partnerships with the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism and the California Religious Action Center

PTS is a founding member of the Peninsula Multifaith Coalition.
