The SAC continues to function with COVID still a concern. We are all hoping that there is some light at the end of this very dark tunnel! We are looking into a few new activities in the near future:

  • Providing monthly meals at the Dream Center. The center provides housing and counseling for young adults who have aged out of foster care. They are a program of SAY. (Social Advocates for Youth.) They are also neighbors of Beth Ami. We have volunteered in the past and are happy to begin again.
  • Plan a clean up day at a local beach or park on Earth day, in late April. Details when a date and location is secured.
  • We will participate in the bring out the vote campaign that is being facilitated by Nir Shalom and co- sponsored by Shomrei Torah . This is a non partisan effort to encourage citizens to vote in the upcoming elections. It consists of writing postcards to pre assigned people in different states. There is a script that you follow. Many of us did it in last years elections. Postcards are shown to be effective in encouraging voting and it is a fairly easy way to participate from home. The campaign continues in mid-March. Details soon.

    We are continuing to serve hot meals for 100 residents of The Palms every other month. We still pack individual dinners. We hope someday soon to serve in person and have more contact with the residents. Our next meal will be in April. If you are interested in participating we would love the help. We never can bring too much food.
    We continue to volunteer at the food bank. Last time we were joined by members of the newly formed men’s group. Wonderful. Our next scheduled date is March Wednesday 8, from 10:00-11:30 or 1:00. You must make a reservation to participate. The phone number is 1707-523-7900. refb.orgThe Social Action Committee has a monthly meeting on the second Tuesday of the month at 1:00. The next scheduled meeting is March 9th. Hopefully this meeting will be in person. For more information please contact Lyla Nathan at 707-4864905 or
    Hoping that everyone is safe and taking care,
    B’Shalom, Lyla
