Tikkun Olam Committee

In Hebrew, Tikkun Olam means “repairing the world.” Temple Israel’s Tikkun Olam committee brings members of the congregation together around issues of social justice. In our activities, we work to act in solidarity with vulnerable communities and build relationships across lines of difference. Temple Israel partners with CHUM to help improve the lives of Duluth community members, through advocacy, volunteerism and fundraising.

A few of our ongoing projects:

  • Yom Kippur food drive

  • Hanukkah hat and glove drive

  • National Night Out

  • Joint Religious Legislative Coalition’s annual Day on the Hill

  • Collecting tuna for the CHUM foodshelf

  • Sponsoring the Lifehouse Prom

  • Annual Beach Sweep

  • Serving Christmas dinner at Union Gospel Mission

     

Upcoming Social Justice Opportunities

JLRC Day on the Hill

The joint religious legislative coalition will have its annual lobby day on February 7th. Members of Temple Israel are invited to attend.

This year JLRC will be advocating for Affordable Housing, Child Care, and Food Security. Your voice is powerful and it matters. Come use it with us during Day On The Hill to talk to your legislators about your experiences and what matters to you! Scholarships are available.

If you haven’t done so, please check out JRLC’s 2019 Legislative Agenda.

Please register for the event through JRLC and then let CHUM know you are going attending.
