Tikkun HaYam, (Repair the Sea), raises awareness in the Jewish community of the threats facing the marine environment and wonders of the sea. With an environmentalist's approach to Tikkun Olam, we partner with G-d in repairing the world, because, if we don’t work NOW to repair the sea, the rest of the world doesn’t stand a chance.
Open to all ages.
Cleanup materials, drinks, and snacks will be provided, but come dressed to get dirty.
Just bring masks and a desire to honor mother earth, all other materials provided.

Charleston Waterkeeper staff scientist Cheryl Carmack will be on hand to explain the importance of keeping our waterways safe and clean, plus learn about Bal tashchit ("do not destroy"), a basic ethical principle in Jewish law that reinforces this mitzvah. Arranged by the EE Tikkun Olam Committee
