Congregants on the Tikkun Olam Council are dedicated to making change in the lives of individuals and their families in our community. 

Our program is carried out through service, education and action work. Working groups focus on mitzvah and service projects, Israel, community engagement and partnership (interfaith as well as with Jewish communal organizations), and legislative action and advocacy.
