Tikkun Olam

Our Commitment

JRC is Judaism in action and nowhere is this more evident than in our commitment to Tikkun Olam (Repair of the World).

Twice a month, on average, finds us cooking at soup kitchens in the Evanston community. We’ve traveled to Israel and Africa, and in our own "backyard," New Orleans, on work and study missions, with plans to return and continue meeting, learning and doing. Judaism in action!

We discuss, we learn, we plan, we cook, we resettle, we tear down, we rebuild, we are energized in our efforts at Tikkun Olam. We are Judaism and JRC in Social Action!

We even like to share opportunities that aren't sponsored directly by JRC, but may be of interest to our members. You can learn how to share your passion for Tikkun Olam with the JRC community here.


Visit our Task Forces & Projects page for more information on Tikkun Olam at JRC.

A symbol of our commitment to Tikkun Olam is the Rescued Holocaust Torah that we are caring for. Please click on the link for the history of this Torah and how we came to acquire it.
