Welcome to Tikkun Olam
Tikkun Olam is an essential Jewish value, referring to the human responsibility for fixing what is wrong with the world. The purpose of the Tikkun Olam committee at Shir Ami is to serve as the channel for events and activities that improve the well being of those in our Shir Ami community, as well as in Bucks County, Philadelphia, Israel and around the world. Activities include a focus on service and social justice and include projects such as Mitzvah Day, Adopt a Highway, and special Shabbat services. The Tikkun Olam committee will coordinate with Tikkun Olam representatives from the auxiliaries to develop a wide-ranging plan for addressing the needs in our community and beyond.
If you are interested in being part of this vital committee or learning more about what we do, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Our biggest event of the year is Mitzvah Day, which will be held on Sunday, April 23, 2017. Stay tuned for more information!

Our committee works with professionals in the community to best serve persons in crisis and in need of financial assistance on a short term basis. The Sharing is Caring committee works to maximize the resources of the community so we can help as many needy individuals as possible. We respond to calls for financial assistance discretely, promptly and with high regard for privacy and personal dignity of those needing food, shelter, clothing and other essentials. These good deeds are made possible through private donations, rather than through fundraising.
You can help us by taking part in Shir Ami's Mitzvah Day, January 17, 2016, and by donating non-perishable food items each time you come to the synagogue. Please volunteer at the Shir Ami Food Pantry.
