The Temple Beth Shalom community does amazing volunteer work both inside and outside of the temple walls. Tikkun Olam is an important part of Jewish life, and this guide documents the organizations and causes to which congregants devote their passions, time, knowledge, and skills both within the Jewish community and to society as a whole. Thanks for sharing your tikkun olam efforts, and for being the face of those efforts to your congregational community!
