Is Kol Shalom active in the Portland community?
Very much so. Our social action initiatives demonstrate our commitment to community responsibility. We promote social justice and engage in public affairs, advancing our ideals of equity and tolerance. For example, our Social Action Committee works through the Metropolitan Alliance for Common Good (MACG), Oregon Food Bank, and for mental healthcare parity. We believe in intellectual freedom in the pursuit of tolerance, truth and knowledge, for our children and ourselves. There are no questions that may not be asked, no answers that are forbidden.
