Tikkun Olam

(Repairing the World)

Caring for Ourselves, Caring for Others

At Temple Isaiah we take very seriously our responsibility for repairing the world through individual and collaborative action. Tikkun Olam represents our caring for both ourselves and for others. Our rabbinic tradition teaches that we are required to focus on our own individual families, on the Jewish community, and on the world at large.

Tikkun Olam at Temple Isaiah is comprised of three pillars: Hineini: Temple Caring Community through which we support, comfort, and celebrate our fellow congregants, Israel Action, and SOCIAL ACTION.

Our Social Action Committee is the principal group that coordinates efforts ranging from service (Tzedakah) to those in need to Tzedek programs that address root causes of social injustice on local, national, and international levels.
