The mission of Tikkun Olam is to improve the world by doing social action through mitzvot and good deeds. Our projects will encompass the Israeli community, local community and Jewish community.
CARING COMMUNITY (Kehillat Chesed) is a group of TBT congregants who visit, provide meals, provide transportation to doctor’s appointments and TBT functions (i.e. Torah study, religious services, events) to TBT members. We reach out to our members who live alone, feel isolated, are in assisted living residences, nursing homes, and hospitals. Each Rosh Hashanah and Purim we make and deliver goodie bags. We also host a Chanukah luncheon, and a Passover Seder at TBT. If you are in need of our assistance or know someone who is please let us know.
MITZVAH MEALS (in conjunction with Temple Beth Sholom) Prepare meals for people in need. The time is commitment is three hours from 9 AM to Noon. If you cannot volunteer to prepare meals you can sign up to provide home baked or store bought brownies, cookies etc. We are planning on signing up once a month. Please let us know if you would like to join us when we go as a group or provide brownies or cookies. If you want to sign up individually and for more information go to: http://www.tbsoc.com/mitzvahmeals/
MITZVAH MAVENSis a TBT group that crochets and/or knits for our Simcha Baby Program. All newborns at TBT receive hand-made gifts. Each year this group also takes on a Tikkun Olam Project. This year they will be making lap blankets for an Alzheimer facility. Experienced or new at the art of crocheting/knitting are invited to join.
HELP FEED THE COMMUNITY TBT has worked with several stores in the area to donate food to the Pathways of Hope food bank. The store pickups are every Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday. We need volunteers to help with these pick-ups. Please call Gary Gruber @ 714) 319-0030.
