Safety Net Action Committee

As a committee, we are committed to:

  • Working with faith groups and other organizations to explore and advance the cause of universal health care in the United States.
  • A shared belief that providing for affordable, high quality and universally accessible health care is a moral and ethical responsibility rooted in our Jewish texts and traditions.


Toward these goals, we plan to: 

  • Further educate ourselves and others
  • Do outreach and build alliances with other faith-based organizations
  • Sponsor educational events and take part in community actions that promote universal, affordable health care.

This past year we:

  • Sponsored a film and forum at Or Shalom on single payer and other options for universal health care.
  • Created an Or Shalom statement on the moral and ethical need for faith groups to become involved in the struggle for universal health care in the United States.
