Empty Your Pockets for Yom Kippur

The Or Shalom board is honoured to ratify the Tikkun Olam Committee’s recommendations for the four organizations to receive Tzedakah funds from the High Holy Days 5782 Tzedakah Fund. You can donate here.

The Tikkun Olam Co-ordinating Committee’s selections were guided by the intention to support the important work of at least one local, one Israeli, one Indigenous and one climate organization.

The donations collected from the proceeds of the Tzedakah Fund, as well as both the physical Empty Your Pockets tzedakah bowl (available on Erev Yom Kippur) and the virtual Empty Your Pockets, will be divided equally among these four worthy organizations: Raven Trust, Battered Women’s Support Services, New Israel Fund Canada, and Sustainabiliteens.
