Tikkun Olam

Tikkun Olam is Hebrew for "Repairing the World"

Our congregation strives not only to provide care.  We are piloting several projects that seek to address the causes of social injustice and suffering, or the patterns of living that endanger our planet.  Many members of the congregation are also active individually as professionals and lay leaders of area nonprofits, and in local and state government.
 

  • For many years we have hosted the Nashua area CROP Walk (Communities Responding to Overcome Poverty). The CROP Walk brings together congregations of all faiths – hundreds of walkers raising $40-50,000 each year to fight hunger in Greater Nashua and worldwide.
  • Each month, members volunteer at Family Promise of Greater Nashua at Anne Marie House, where families make the transition out of homelessness and learn skills for self-sufficiency.
  • Members created the Jewish Womens' Giving Circle, a five-year-old tzedakah collective that meets monthly to learn the skills of philanthropy and get involved in area projects that address inequities in our community.
  • Our Sisterhood Gift Shop stocks many Fair Trade items, including chocolate year-round and for Chanuka and Pesach as well as Judaica such as Mayaworks kippot and Judaica.
  • We were part of the first group to participate in LoKo, creating a market for local, organic kosher chicken, and to support Magen Tzedek, the Conservative movement program to raise kosher food production to the highest ethical standards.
  • Rabbi Jon is co-chair of Circles Greater Nashua, where people and families poised for self-sufficiency work with community allies toward a more sustainable income and life in the community.

Take a look at a play by an interfaith youth group to be presented at the CROP Walk. There are four different videos to view.
