Repairing the World (Tikkun Olam)
“...We know when we are at Micah that there is such a thing as the sacred, that our good deeds count for something” --Rabbi Daniel Zemel
“The pursuit of social justice as a Jewish obligation is seen as a primary expression of a religious life. The ethical mandate of Judaism is both a communal and individual responsibility. We seek to make acts of love and kindness real in our daily lives.”
Tikkun Olam is very important to us. We participate in a wide variety of projects to do our part to repair the world. Please refer to the individual folders to the left for more information about specific projects.
