Tikkun Olam is a fundamental part of the Jewish and character education that happens in our Religious School and Youth Groups. Each week we collect tzedakah to give to various causes. Our students also take a Tikkun Olam field trip every year and study the Jewish values behind that particular cause. The biggest way our older students can do justice work is through our social justice teen fellowship.
Tikkun Olam is a fundamental part of the Jewish and character education that happens in our RAMBAM Day School. Each month our students have a dress down day to raise money for various causes. These causes are chosen by our student council. Any student of the Day School can present to the student council to have them consider raising money for their charity.
Each year our students participate in Kids Heart Challenge (previously known as Jump Rope For Heart), an annual fundraising event for elementary and middle schools around the world, with thousands of schools and millions of kids participating to raise money and awareness for the American Heart Association.
Each year in the elementary school, each grade level is paired with a particular cause. During that year, they learn about that cause from both a domestic and Jewish perspective, they do hands on activities to help the cause and take a field trip to learn from people and organizations that work everyday on the cause. Some of the topics include ecology, literacy, immigration, hunger, and caring for the elderly.

Mass shootings and gun violence are resolvable problems despite rhetoric to the contrary. At TBAM, we’re taking a two-pronged approach: documenting the horrors of gun violence and educating in gun-safety awareness. Help us shape the narrative to reduce gun violence in our community and the country.
