Council for Social Justice (Tikkun Olam Committee)

“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.
