Tikkun Olam means repairing the world.
This mitzvah fellowship attempts to do just that by studying current issues and creating opportunities for B’nai Shalom members to participate in community-based projects dealing with poverty, homelessness, violence, cultural diversity, and social advocacy.
Some of our recent projects include:
- Tutor training for the Jewish Coalition for Literacy (JCL)
- Providing school supplies for underprivileged children
- Holiday turkey drive for the Food Bank of Contra Costa and Solano counties
- Serving food at Shelter, Inc. in Martinez
- Tu B’Shvat food drive
