Through a combination of activities that support our own congregation and the Atlanta community at large, Temple Beth Tikvah offers much needed support through social action and Tikkun Olam (repairing the world.)
This committee allows Temple Beth Tikvah congregants to provide support, solace, and hope to each other during times of illness, suffering, loss, and grief. Outreach efforts include preparing shiva meals and providing assistance to grieving families, identifying resources in the community for special needs, and celebrating life’s simchas such as births, adoptions, and marriages.
The Social Action Committee provides congregants with opportunities to carry out mitzvahs (good deeds) by supporting the broader Atlanta community through partnerships with other organizations such as Jewish Family and Career Services, Family Promise, The Drake House, and Blessings in a Backpack. By collecting donations throughout the year of food, clothing, and other much need supplies, Temple Beth Tikvah is able to give back to the parts of our community in need while inspiring a sense of Tikkun Olam in our own community.
