Hidden from most people's daily lives are the impoverished portions of our society and those in need. Whether it be the hungry, the homeless, the elderly or a local or national disaster, Mickve Israel is there to make a difference. Through various programs, our families help reach out to those people in need. See our Community page for specifics.

Mickve Israel is pleased to cosponsor with Congregation Agudath Achim, a comprehensive religious school for children from pre-kindergarten through high school. Ours is one of the few religious schools in the United States to successfully serve the children and families of both Conservative and Reform Congregations. Visit their site now.
Through a wide array of activities from all aspects of the Mickve Israel membership, we are very active within the Savannah community from our Sisterhood to our Social Action Committee, just to name a few. Click here for more information.
Savannah Jewish Archives: Established by the Savannah Jewish Federation in 1995, the mission of the SJA is to acquire and preserve materials with permanent historical value to theSavannah area Jewish community. The Archives, located at the Georgia Historical Society, includes personal papers, business records, photographs, oral histories and artifacts from the 1750s to the present. Volunteers & donations are greatly appreciated. Learn more by visiting the archives website.
Savannah Jewish Alliance: The JEA is a community asset like no other! So much more than a community center, the JEA pulls together the entire Jewish community with activities which include all three synagogues, B'nai Brith Jacob (the orthodox), Agudath Achim (the conservative) and of course Mickve Israel. In fact, they pull together the entire community, Jewish and non-Jewish. To learn more about the JEA, please visit their site.
Union for Reform Judaism: Mickve Israel is a member of the URJ, which provides vision and leadership to Reform Jews and congregations on spiritual, ethical, social justice and management issues. It provides programmatic support to Reform Jewish congregations and offers opportunities for individual growth and identity that few congregations could provide by themselves, such as camps and Israel programs for youth, study kallot and North American and regional biennials. The website of the URJ provides wonderful information on a variety of subjects (family concerns, leadership, social action, lifelong Jewish learning).
