Tikkun Olam

“An old Israeli song said, “Ani Veata Neshaneh at Haolam — You and I will change the world.” It reminds us that change is possible — but only when we work together. Please join with fellow members of Temple Isaiah in the task of Tikkun Olam — repair of our broken world through Social Action.”

– Rabbi Craig Axler

At Temple Isaiah, our efforts to help “Repair Our World” involve both Social Action and Social Justice initiatives.
