The Tikkun Olam Center for Jewish Social Justice provides the means for all our members to engage in social activism with our highest vision and values as Reform Jews.  We recognize that "repairing the world" is a central, defining characteristic of Reform Judaism.  As our center understands it, it means creating an inclusive community in which members engage in social justice, through social service, advocacy, and respectful discourse, as an expression of their Jewish identity.

Celebrate Shavuot

Celebrate Shavuot

Shavuot means “weeks.” It marks the completion of the seven-week counting period, the Omer, between Passover and Shavuot. One of the three pilgrimage holidays mentioned in the Torah, it celebrates both the harvest of the first fruits and the giving of the Torah to the Jewish people on Mount Sinai over 3,000 years ago.
