Suburban Temple- Kol Ami has been committed to tikkun olam, repairing the world, since our founding in 1948. It’s central to our congregational vision and our Reform Jewish values.

The Tikkun Olam committee brings together clergy, board members and members of our congregation to create opportunities for both direct service and advocacy.

Over 2019-2020, our direct service will include:

...in partnership with the Cleveland Kids' Book Bank:

  • Filling Little Free Library monthly
  • Volunteering (and having a great time!) at the Kids' Book Bank to Sip and Sort books

Mitzvah Day: Save the Date—May 3, 2020!

Cooking and/or serving dinner at Calvary Church

 

Over 2019-2020, our advocacy will include:

RAC Ohio: bringing together all the URJ (Reform) Congregations in Ohio to build a Jewish movement for justice in Ohio. We are coming together to speak in one united faith voice about the issues we care about including gun control, criminal justice reform, substance use disorder, and more. Our local voices make a difference!

Greater Cleveland Congregations: a non-partisan coalition of faith communities and partner organizations in Cuyahoga County working together to build power for social justice. As a catalyst for systemic change, GCC challenges Greater Clevelanders to imagine the change we can accomplish to build a greater Cleveland for all of its residents. GCC unites people across lines of race, class, religion, and geography to promote public, private and civic sector actions which strengthen and improve the quality of life of our neighborhoods. Campaigns such as gun violence reduction, local education reform and food sustainability have gained traction in Cleveland and beyond.
