Social Service and the Synagogue

"Whereas the impulse for true social service springs from the basic and cardinal teachings of Judaism traditionally expressed through and by the synagogue, be it resolved that the Union of American Hebrew Congregations, in Council assembled, recognizes that individual Jewish responsibilities include the duty to support the synagogue and the obligation to uphold its position in the spiritual, cultural, philanthropic, and other beneficent activities of Jewish life."
