Tikkun Olam at TBE
TBE's Hunger & Homelessness Working Group's Multi-Congregational Tzedakah Reflection on Poverty
Sunday, March 23 at 2:00 pm
- Modeled after our successful "Shabbat Reflections" on Reducing Gun Violence and Climate Change, our goal is to mobilize our communities to act together to address poverty through advocacy, service, and innovation. We are planning this with a diverse group of congregations including, Shaarei Tefilah, Temple Shalom, Temple Emanuel, Temple Sinai, Newton Centre Minyan, and Temple Ohabei Shalom. Still other congregations will be joining. For more information or to RSVP, contact Marilyn Komessar, email@example.com. Click here to read more
Tikkun Olam at TBE — How Do You Tikkun Olam?
We are a community grounded in Jewish values acting to change the world. Compelled by our Jewish values and traditions, we use our collective power to strengthen our communities and make a lasting difference in the world. Through action, learning and reflection, we provide opportunities for all members to participate in a wide range of activities, including direct service, developing partnerships in the community and organizing to create systemic and institutional change. Through our work and learning, we grow as individuals, deepen connections to each other and strengthen our community, inside and outside the walls of our Temple.
There are opportunities every time you enter the doors of TBE to impact the lives of others and participate in the sacred mandate to help to repair our world. Bring a can of tuna or a box of cereal for our Family Table collections or any non-perishable food item for community food bank donations. Start a collection drive for an organization to which you feel connected. Participate in one of the temple sponsored service, advocacy or learning programs, described below. As a temple community we can have an impact, if we are mindful about the small and large ways we can perform acts of Tikkun Olam and if we dedicate ourselves to this important Jewish tenet.
We hope you will join us and volunteer for one of our many Tikkun Olam programs and feel inspired to help repair our world!
