“Together We Can Repair the World”

Judaism is the day to day mitzvot of our hands and our hearts — changing the lives of those whom we willingly encounter, in which the giver and the receiver are both enriched.  Please join with the Tikkun Olam Committee of University Synagogue as we work together to build community within our synagogue and with communities near and far.
