Tikkun Olam

Tikkun Olam at Tzedek v’Shalom

Our goal for tikkun olam (social action) is to engage the entire Tzedek v’Shalom community in both dialogue and action. Like many communities of faith, we are committed to helping to improve the lives of people who are suffering, whether for economic, social or political reasons. We are also willing to engage in dialogue about difficult and controversial issues, such as how to create a lasting peace in Israel that is fair to both Israelis and Palestinians.
