Tikkun Olam

No Hate/No Fear Solidarity Rally at Synagogue Emanu-El, January 12, 2020

Tikkun  olam (Hebrew for "repair the world") is the Jewish concept of following the commandments to help others.  We as Jews are tasked with repairing the world in preparation for the world to come.  Synagogue Emanu-El's Tikkun olam program of social action and community service is active in our communities--the Jewish community, the Lowcountry, and the world beyond the local.  We are always better together and together we will be as we make Tikkun olam an ever important part of Synagogue Emanu-El.
