Beth Am Helps to

Repair the World

The Tikkun Olam Committee is the Social Action arm of the congregation. We are guided by the Jewish principle of Tikkun Olam or “to repair the world.”

Our congregants are concerned with a broad range of social justice issues — from homelessness to hunger, to the needs of Jews around the world. Your Tikkun Olam Committee coordinates and provides volunteer assistance to synagogue, community and worldwide causes.

Whether it’s Mitzvah Day, a holiday Food Drive or volunteering at a homeless shelter… Tikkun Olam is a wonderful opportunity for parents to teach their children the meaning of tzedakah… for older children to fulfill their community service obligation… for all Beth Am members to get involved.

Join with us to make a difference. As Hillel said, “If I am only for myself, who am I?”

If you think you are too small to have an impact, try going to bed with a mosquito in the room.
