Tikkun Olam: Social Action

social action at Mishkan Ha'am: tikkun olamTikkun Olam, a Jewish take on social action, stems from the belief that we are here to join together in repairing the world. Our Tikkun Olam Committee operates within a Reconstuctionist framework and offers opportunities for social action, political and environmental activism as well as the giving of tzdekah, the obligation to help those with less. We are passionate about supporting the rights of all people, including immigrants, refugees, LGBTQ and economically vulnerable communities.

Our Social Action activities include food drives, coat drives and communal cooking for a local soup kitchen. We actively share opportunities to connect with others on marches, calls to local representatives, immigrant accompaniment training, food justice work, etc. This year we join other Reconstructionists in studying about and responding to the widening social and economic inequality in America. We look forward to connecting with members of all ages to discover the joy and gratification of being part of a larger purpose.
