Tikkun Olam

Welcome to Tikkun Olam/Sharing is Caring Committee

Our mission is to promote Tikkun Olam within the congregation through various projects that provide vision, leadership and program support to Shir Ami. We encourage gemilut chasadim, acts of justice and loving kindness through applying Judaic principles to contemporary issues.

Sharing is Caring Committee TikkunOlam_3

Our committee works with professionals in the community  to best serve persons in crisis and in need of financial assistance on a short term basis. The Sharing is Caring committee works to maximize the resources of the community so we can help as many needy individuals as possible. We respond to calls for financial assistance discretely, promptly and with high regard for privacy and personal dignity of those needing food, shelter, clothing and other essentials. These good deeds are made possible through private donations, rather than through fundraising.

You can help us by taking part in Shir Ami's Mitzvah Day and by donating non-perishable food items each time you come to the synagogue. Please volunteer at the Shir Ami Food Pantry.
