In 2005, a group of dedicated and motivated Temple members
organized Tikkun Olam of Temple Emanu-El.
Our first event was a congregationwide Mitzvah Day, at which we came together to help others in a variety of hands-on projects.
Tikkun olam literally means “to fix the world” and is considered a core value among Jews. At Emanu-El, the Tikkun Olam Committee identifies ways in which we, as a synagogue, can “lend a helping hand,” particularly through social-action projects that are intended to make life better for others in the community.
This fall, Temple Emanu-El will celebrate its 10th Mitzvah Day.

We invite all Temple members to join our efforts and to experience the feeling of gratification that comes from helping others.
