“Some religions require a leap of faith. Judaism requires a leap of action.” ~ Abraham Heschel
Engage in one of many opportunities throughout the year to respond to Gun Violence Prevention. Direct Service, advocacy and action go hand-in-hand in effecting change. Through service, we change lives one by one, and through advocacy and action we address the root causes of violence.

Mayor Meetings for Gun Violence Prevention
Temple Beth Sholom is partnering with other congregations in Miami to advocate for gun violence prevention. Guided by the call in Leviticus 19:16, “Do not stand idly by while your neighbor bleeds,” we are meeting with the mayors of different municipalities in the area to gain their support in preventing gun violence. We are meeting with mayors in our vicinity to discuss how they can play a role in gun violence prevention, by signing a pledge that they will to engage in dialogue with the manufacturers of firearms. If you would like to participate in these meetings, please contact Myra Spindel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
