Advocacy

We encourage you to join our Advocacy Group at Temple Beth Shalom! As Reform Jews, we make a collective effort to bring our values to bear in the community at large. We engage on issues of local, national, and global concern. We participate in interfaith coalitions and activities. We speak out on behalf of the vulnerable and we seek justice for all.

We also participate every year in events like Austin PRIDE and NAMIWalks with the National Alliance on Mental Illness in Austin. Please refer to the temple calendar for specific dates and event information. 

Our Social Justice Fellow, Lori Adelman, works with the Austin Reform Jewish community to create a sustainable formal structure for us to work together on social justice issues. Learn more about Lori and her work with our community.
