Social Action and Tikun Olam (literally, Repairing the World) are vital parts of the Congregation Beth Sholom community. The Social Action/Tikkun Olam Committee is dedicated to spreading the word about opportunities to repair our world through commitment and love for our fellow man and woman.
Members of the synagogue regularly volunteer at the area Soup Kitchens in Hackensack and Englewood and collect food and clothing for special drives throughout the year. The committee also sponsors special activities based around Jewish holidays so that those who are less fortunate can still celebrate our joyous times – like Hanukkah, Purim, and Passover – with dignity and respect.
To get involved in the Social Action/Tikun Olam Committee, please contact the Synagogue Office at firstname.lastname@example.org or (201) 833-2620.
