Tikkun Olam

Tikkun Olam is the social action arm of Temple Beth Abraham. Tikkun Olam, literally means, “to heal the world.” The mission of TBA’s Tikkun Olam team is to inform, engage, and mobilize our members to build a better world. They do this globally and locally, as Jews, as citizens, and as members of the global community. Projects range from donating to local food pantry, to supporting efforts to transform food distribution methods around the world. From bringing food and supplies to homeless people in NYC, to rebuilding communities hit by natural disasters nationwide. From writing a check, to swinging a hammer, to calling a Congress person.

The co-chairs of the Tikkun Olam Team are Melissa Baer and Andrea White.  You may reach them at tikkunolam@tba-ny.org
