Make a difference, one mitzvah at a time...

 

Jewish Tradition teaches us that we must play an active role in the world. The concept of tikun olam—repairing the world—expresses the value of volunteering in Judaism. The world may be imperfect, but we have an obligation to help make it better, more whole. Especially now, in a pandemic, we are seeking ways we can help one another through these unusually difficult times.

Connect

 

Volunteering is, in essence, holy work, and we're excited to be your partner in finding meaningful volunteer opportunities locally, and in connecting you with opportunities nationally and internationally, as well as sharing resources about the Jewish traditions and teachings underpinning volunteerism.

Think Global, Act Local

 

Each of us can do our part and contribute to the vitality of the world around us, setting an example for our children, being a role model for our peers, inspiring others to follow in our active footsteps.

Charleston's Jewish Communal Response to Hunger

 

With the ongoing expansion of our Jewish Community Relations Council's food distribution efforts underway, we've sought to gain full community buy-in in support of our food insecurity work, but also to coordinate and cross-promote tikkun olam and volunteer opportunities taking place at each of our synagogues and Jewish organizations in Charleston. The result has been the creation of a group of professionals and lay leaders representing each of our synagogues under the banner of the “Jewish Communal Response to Hunger”. This new group has agreed to promote and coordinate volunteer opportunities at each of the synagogues, report on results, coordinate community-wide food drives and support the work our JCRC and Federation have been doing to tackle food insecurity on the Eastside of Downtown Charleston.
