Tikkun Olam Chavurah
Tikkun Olam Chavurah introduces itself with the line, "A spiritual and political community grounded in Jewish tradition," and gives the following descriptive information:
The Tikkun Olam Chavurah is a Philadelphia-based spiritual and political community grounded in Jewish values. Working in the pursuit of tzedek (justice) and tikkun olam (repair of the world), we focus on interfaith work to support social justice in the Philadelphia area and in Israel/Palestine.
Our work includes supporting immigrant rights and environmental justice, preventing gun violence, resisting the assault on public education, and promoting economic justice in the Philadelphia region. We also work to support peace with justice in Israel/Palestine.
We are building a community with Rabbi Linda Holtzman committed to radical inclusion that supports one another's paths in seeking justice. We gather to study, pray, and celebrate holidays as well as take action for social change.
