Deuteronomy 15:11: For there will never cease to be needy ones in your land, which is why I command you: open your hand to the poor and needy kinsman in your land.
The Tikkun Olam Committee for the Temple of Israel will act to ensure our hands are always open for our community.
Tikkun Olam is alive and well at Temple of Israel. The Tikkun Olam Committee holds events on a monthly basis as we strive to meet our mission. We hold 3 main food drives per year, as well as a variety of other events in support of our partner charity organizations. The Temple of Israel calendar and monthly bulletin contains details for upcoming Tikkun Olam opportunities.
Tikkun Olam at Temple of Israel is pursued through three main pillars:
- Eliminating Hunger – We are committed to the eradication of hunger from our community
- Well Being and Being Well – We are committed to creating opportunities for everyone to live healthy, rewarding, meaningful lives.
- Providing Audacious Hospitality – We are committed to everyone experiencing a sense of belonging within our Jewish community.
