Tikkun Olam

 

Part of CBH's mission is Tikkun Olam, or repairing the world. Members of all ages work together to promote social justice and have a positive impact on the communities of which we are a part. Sometimes this is through volunteering, sometimes through learning more about important issues, and sometimes it is through political action or protest.

CBH involves members in addressing issues such as civil rights, gender equality, living wage, human rights, and homelessness. Some of the organizations we have supported are Sojourn, Georgia Equality, The Atlanta Food Bank, and Atlanta Jobs with Justice.

Tikkun olam is an integral part of the culture and tradition of Reconstructionist Judaism and of CBH.
The concept of good deeds - ma'asim tovim - consists of three components: tikkun olam (the repair of the world), gemilut chasadim (acts of loving kindness) and tzedakah (righteous giving). We try to do some of all three!
