                           Social Action - Tikkun Olam

Tikkun Olam is Hebrew for “repairing the world.”

At Congregation Beth Jacob, our vision of a successful synagogue is a diverse, integrated community that revolves around mitzvot, and where the congregants see themselves as partners in creating meaning and connection towards this goal.

CBJ is a vibrant, engaged community whose members are connected to the notion of Tikkun Olam in multiple and overlapping ways.

We coordinate projects throughout the year that bring together different ages and groups within the congregation. If you’re looking for ways to to support the local community this year please join one of these efforts.
