Social Justice


Rodef Tzedek: Center for Pursuing Justice

Call it justice or social action. At Rodef Sholom, we call it tikkun olam. We believe it is our responsibility to act – boldly and powerfully – to bring healing, dignity, justice and peace to our world.

Repairing the world is central to everything we do, locally and globally.  Whether leading or supporting, we recognize and stand up for the rights of others.  And we believe that our passion and dedication will change the world.

As Rabbi Hillel said in the Talmud, “Love your neighbor, and love yourself. This is the whole Torah. All the rest is commentary.”

2020 COVID POP UP FOOD DRIVE 

In April 2020 When close to 80 percent of Venetia Valley School parents impacted by COVID-19 lost their jobs, Venetia Valley School and  Rodef Sholom, partnered to mobilize staff and volunteers to help their community.

In addition, they collected private donations to fund grocery store gift cards for these same families. 

From April-July 2020, we distributed: 39,000 meals, 3,000 grocery & household supply bags, 500 school supplies & book bags, 50 baby supply bags, 2,500 produce boxes, 1,900 gallons of milk, 760 boxes of cereal, 800 masks, over $16,000 is restaurant certificates, over $40,000 in Safeway and Target gift cards and 200 deliveries to families with no transportation.
