Religious Action Center

HomeBeth Israel – The West Temple was recently awarded a mini-grant in the amount of $5,000 from the Gilbert and Eleanor Kraus Initiative for Immigrant and Refugee Justice at the Religious Action Center. This mini-grant will amplify the efforts our members have been dedicating to advocating for and with Cleveland’s immigrant and refugee communities. With this grant, the Beth Israel high school class and social action committee plans to partner with local immigrant serving organizations to get resources to families in need and to advocate for policies that welcome refugees and immigrants into our community. If you are interested in being part of a congregational team to plan activities related to this grant, please email Judy Wright, Social Action Chair, at to get involved.
