The Ways We Can Pursue Tikkun Olam at Shir Ami

Shir Ami is dedicated to pursuing justice in every aspect of our lives and communities. We teach this to our children and are guided by our commitment to the Brit Olam, or covenant, of the Religious Action Center of Reform Judaism (RAC) – to create a world in which all people experience wholeness, justice and compassion.

Whether we are speaking about food insecurity in our own backyard, racial or environmental justice, accessible voting, raising money through various programs, and general support of Shir Ami  – our guide to perform acts of Tikkun Olam (to repair the world) is vital to the Jewish community and beyond.


TIKKUN OLAM COMMITTEE

Our Shir Ami Tikkun Olam Committee is responsible for coordinating Shir Ami members’ involvement in direct service projects and social justice advocacy efforts. We offer many opportunities for members of all ages and abilities to get involved. Volunteers may commit to a single activity or ongoing projects. The committee grounds its work in Reform Jewish values expressed in our sacred Jewish texts, while respecting the diversity of the congregation and the range of views held by its members.

This year Shir Ami is concentrating its efforts on two areas: RACIAL JUSTICE, which includes all forms of bigotry, and ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE, taking localized, impactful action in our community. We will also seek to make our members aware of other current topics like voter engagement, criminal justice reform, immigration  policies, gun violence prevention and reproductive health and rights.
