Tikkun Olam - Social Justice

Get involved with the Tikkun Olam at Beth El and help us to repair the world!

The Tikkun Olam Committee (TOC) is our congregation's catalyst for seeking social and economic justice. Consistent with the Torah's moral teachings, we are committed to engaging in acts of tzedakah in order to relieve suffering, inequity, and misunderstanding in our local, national, and global communities. We seek others who are similarly interested in doing mitzvot to join us in our mission and to share their ideas for bettering our world. If you would like further information about TOC and about how you can assist our efforts, please contact Diane Thaler
