You are not obligated to complete the work of perfecting the world, but neither are you free to desist from it. 

~Ethics of  Our Fathers, 2:21

With all that is wrong in the world, how can our seemingly small contributions make any real difference?  Between work, family, and other responsibilities, is it even worth carving out the time to engage in social action?

Our Jewish tradition understands that we are busy, and it doesn’t expect any of us to single-handedly save the world. However, if everyone does their small part, we tip the scales towards good. That is a powerful difference, and well worth our efforts.

CBB members engage in various volunteer-led social action projects. Please use the links below to learn more about each organization, and for contact information to get involved.
