PACT- People Acting for Community Together 

If I am not for myself, who will be for me?  When I am only for myself, what am I? If not now, when? - Rabbi Hillel

Temple Beth Sholom is a proud member of PACT, the largest interfaith community in Miami-Dade County working together to make long-lasting change. We believe in building relationships across faith, racial, and socio-economic lines to bring about justice and address our most pressing community concerns.  

PACT uses the power of large organized people to hold public officials accountable to create systemic change in Miami-Dade County. PACT is a ‘direct action’ organization, it hosts large community assemblies where public officials are encouraged to adopt solutions to serious problems. 

PACT identifies issues through an extensive 'Listening Process' reaching more than 1,500 members. After the listening process, PACT members vote on 2-3 problem areas to focus on for the year. Once PACT members achieve victory on a campaign, leaders put in place a series of checks and measures to ensure that progress is made. Public officials remain accountable even after the original objective has been fulfilled.  

PACT congregations are currently working on the following issues:  

  • Policing and Arrests 
  • Caring for Creating 
  • Community IDs 
  • Gun Violence 
  • Affordable Housing  

Fighting injustice is how we love our neighbor as we love ourselves.

Will you join the fight with us?

PACT Miami - Temple Beth Sholom Listening Session on Zoom.  

Monday, September 19 at 7:00 pm. The High Holy Days are a time for deep reflection and connection to ourselves and our community. As we move through this High Holy Day season, there is so much to meditate on - the continuing pandemic, the growing rise in antisemitism, climate change, housing costs, inflation, reproductive rights - among many other concerns. The need for community building and justice work has become exponentially greater. We invite you join us for our annual PACT listening session. This is an opportunity for us to openly share our concerns and hopes for the greater Miami-Dade community and explore our call to do justice. Register.
