Eitz Action

“It is not incumbent upon you to complete the work, but neither are you at liberty to desist from it” (Avot 2:21) attributed to Rabbi Tarfon.

The Eitz Action Committee coordinates activities of the congregation promoting Tikkun Olam, working to repair our broken world through involvement, consistent with Jewish values, in social justice (including environmental justice) projects in our local and global communities. 

Eitz Chayim is proud to be a part of the Cambridge Interfaith Sanctuary Coalition (CISC). We will continue to update this page with information about CISC as well as information about other social and environmental justice causes that are important to our community.

Here are some resources about the Coalition and about providing sanctuary:

The Eitz Action Committee usually meets the 4th Tuesday of the month.
