Tikkun Olam – תיקון עולם

Social Action. Or Shalom is committed to tikkun olam, helping to repair the inequities in this world. Past tikkun olam projects have included sponsorship of refugees from Bosnia, fund-raising for Rosa House (a centre for women and children war refugees in Zagreb, Coatia), participation in Vancouver’s annual Gay Pride Parade, and volunteering in the Mt. Pleasant neighbourhood around Or Shalom

We are pleased to consider supporting any projects – whether they be for community welfare, environmental action, political change, etc- which a group of members undertakes to organize. To initiate or support such action, or to make a donation towards any tikkun olam project, contact tikkun@orshalom.ca

Join Or Shalom’s Tikkun Olam Working Group!

Our small but mighty team is looking for new members to help us fulfill our holy work of helping to heal and repair the world. Since we can’t take on the entire world, we have decided to focus our efforts in two key areas this year: environmental issues and building relationships with our Indigenous neighbours. If you share our passion for this important work and are the kind of person who is willing to roll up your sleeves and organize projects or activities, we’d love to hear from you! We have some great ideas brewing already, but would like to hear yours too. And if you have connections in those communities and thoughts about how we might constructively partner with them, that would be most welcome too. Please contact us at tikkun@orshalom.ca if Tikkun Olam is where you want to put your energy at Or Shalom!
