“Do not separate yourself from the community.”
-Pirkei Avot 2:5

Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World) is one of the basic tenets of Reform Judaism. Beth Ahabah serves this tradition with engagement in a wide variety of social action projects that support and improve the community. The mission of the Tikkun Olam Committee is to provide ongoing opportunities for congregants to participate in social action activities and advocacy that benefit the Richmond Jewish and general community. We invite you to get involved.

Mitzvah Corps

Mitzvah Corps is people working together to serve our community through monthly projects sponsored by the Tikkun Olam committee. The committee also sponsors the  ongoing year long of providing lunch through The Friends of the Homeless lunch program on the third Wednesday of the month at  Mt. Moriah Baptist Church.   Join us to do good and helping our neighbors and the community.
