Tikkun Olam

Start a new relationship with the word around you.

Translated, Tikkun Olam means the healing and repairing of the world – a communal obligation of the Jewish people. At Kol Shofar we perform a variety of good deeds (ma’asim tovim) throughout the year and there are various opportunities to get involved in social action projects for members of all ages.

Current Tikkun Olam Projects:

Kol Shofar Garden

Kol Shofar is excited to grow a community garden! The vision for this  project grew out of the Tikkun Olam committee and is a place of education, service, and beauty where adults and kids of all ages— including the JCC Preschoolers!—work together to grow healthy food to feed the hungry in our community. Get involved! Get your hands dirty, grow some healthy food, make a friend and make a difference!

Team Shelter

Kol Shofar actively participates in the Men’s Homeless Shelter dinners on Sundays from Nov–April at Westminster Presbyterian Church.

Kol Shofar is proud to be part of the Interfaith Communities REST (Rotating Emergency Shelter Team). We partner with several churches and synagogues in Marin to help shelter and feed the growing homeless in our community.

Volunteers Needed at Kol Shofar

There is a never-ending list of ways to help at our synagogue! We have many opportunities for teens and adults. From helping in the office, to welcoming at our reception desk, to greeting at events, to serving on a committee, Kol Shofar is the place to your use your time and skills wisely and effectively while giving back to our wonderful community. Some positions are ongoing and some are just one-time assistance — you can choose what works best for your schedule. Teens can get volunteer credit.
