He became a small claims court judge when he retired in 1982, and was also a part-time member of the Ontario Assessment Review Board, a referee for the Law Society of Upper Canada and a lay appointee of the Council for the Association of Ontario Land Surveyors. Sydney Harris was a human rights advocate, fighting for stronger laws in the Criminal Code to combat neo-Nazism. He was also a fervent supporter of the civil rights movement, even meeting with Martin Luther King Junior in 1963. He was active in the Jewish community, serving as president of the Canadian Council of Reform Congregations national president of Toronto Jewish Vocational Services, and president Canadian Friends of Boys Town Jerusalem. He was also a founding member of Upper Canada Lodge, B'nai Brith. Most notably, he served as president of Canadian Jewish Congress, after serving on CJC's National Executive Committee, Foreign Affairs Committee and Religious Welfare Committee. He was secretary of Holy Blossom Temple's board, and then active at Temple Sinai. He was also known for his opposition to religious education in public schools.
