While participants in our community are free to live according to their beliefs, the desire for change often results in organized social action. Our ideals translated into action have resulted in a variety of benefits for our neighbors. The Riverdale Mental Health Clinic, Blythdale Children’s Hospital, the Riverdale Intergroup Relations Committee, the Interfaith Food and Hunger Project, The Riverdale Committee for the Defense of Human Rights, the Paraprofessional Training Institute and the Yonkers Fair Housing Committee are examples. The Bronx Arts Ensemble was formed with the support of the Society; and, the Greater New York Blood Program conducts a yearly drive at the Meeting House.
