COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT | REPAIR THE WORLD

Community Service

“Give of yourself… you can always give something, even if it is only kindness…no one has ever become poor from giving.”

~ Anne Frank, The Diary of a Young Girl, March 1944

Through repairing the world, tikkun olam, we grow as individuals,
deepen connections to each other, and strengthen communities inside and outside of TBE.

Volunteer with fellow TBE members to support our Greater Boston neighbors.
