Social Justice Jewish tradition mandates concern for others, and the IMPJ takes this value seriously.
The IMPJ cooperates with local congregations, the Israel Religious Action Center, the Young Adult Leadership Forum and other bodies in order to plan and implement social justice programs. Activities include distributing basic school equipment to disadvantaged students before the beginning of the school year; distributing traditional food parcels for the needy at Passover; and running a social justice fair at two leading Israeli universities to expose students to organizations active in the field. Many IMPJ congregations run social justice projects on the local level. Or Chadash Congregation in Haifa subsidizes Bar/Bat Mitzvah ceremonies for youngsters from disadvantaged families. Kol Haneshama in Jerusalem runs an English-language tutoring program for local youngsters. Kibbutz Yahel in the Arava hosts groups of Jewish and Arab Israeli children. Through these and many other efforts, IMPJ members express Jewish values in practical and tangible terms.
