- Making the World a Better Place
“Tikkun Olam” – literally: “repair the world” – reflects Judaism’s recognition that God created the world but left it to humans to complete it by improving our lives and the planet.
TIkkun Olam can include caring for the poor, helping refugees, lobbying for improvements and change by governments or organizations, locally or world-wide. Here, at B’nai Torah, some of our members volunteer regularly at local food pantries. We regularly gather donations for the rabbi’s discretionary fund, which might be used for the food pantries or other purposes. We hope to make a small dent in our corner of the world.
What can you do to make this world a better place? What’s your talent? Let us know!
