Tikkun Olam (Social Action)

Volunteer with the Tikkun Olam Council and Change Lives


The Tikkun Olam Council is comprised of involved congregants dedicated to making change in our community, within our own lives and in the lives of individuals and their families in our city, society and world.  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 issue education and legislative action/advocacy. We are making plans for future events and programming and would love to have your participation in one or many of these activities! Check back here for more details, jobs you can do and roles you can take on to make a difference.
