Tikkun Olam (Repairing Our World)

"How wonderful it is that nobody need wait a single moment before starting to improve the world." ~ Anne Frank

At Beth Shalom, members will find a variety of individual and group opportunities to practice Tikkun Olam through the Mitzvah of Tzedakah, acts of loving kindness, and the promotion of social justice.

Acts of Loving Kindness

Beth Shalom provides many opportunities for adults, children, and families to pursue Tikkun Olam through acts of loving kindness. Such opportunities include the annual Yom Kippur and Turkey Drives and other food drives, Mitzvah Day, Good Deeds Day, Habitat for Humanity, and the Federation of Greater Raleigh Meal Delivery. 

Beth Shalom also assists with the physical, emotional, and spiritual support and well-being of our members. We celebrate in our members' joyous events and milestones.  Additionally, we embrace and support those who are experiencing difficult times by visiting, comforting, and providing meals to those in need.

Social Justice

Beth Shalom furthers social justice through advocacy by joining marches that address social inequalities in our community. Our members also attend and support specific community events, including LGBTQ+, interfaith, and interracial events. We intentionally nuture relationships and hold Shabbat Services that promote peace, equality, and inclusiveness.
