Tikkun Olam

Tikkun Olam is an integral part of congregational life at Or Hadash. CV-19 has temporarily interrupted our intimate communications with the community, but we have found ways to overcome during these times.

Current Initiatives

 

Community Assistance Center (CAC) 
CAC serves residents of greater Sandy Springs and Dunwoody communities. They provide food and job assistance, adult education training (financial literacy, computer skills, English as a second language), as well as rent and utility assistance to prevent eviction as families transition into a stable life. We are in great need of volunteer assistance. For a list of  opportunities, please visit the CAC website.

Ongoing through November 25, Monday through Thursday between
9 am to 5 pm, please bring your new or gently used coats, hats, gloves, scarves, sweaters, socks, tights, blankets, and other winter clothing to COH and place in our bins in foyer outside the front door of the building! Your donations will benefit families who are in need in Sandy Springs & Dunwoody and will be delivered to a Community Assistance Center (CAC) location. Contact Jodi Ginsberg (JodiGinsbergLaw@gmail.com) if you have questions. Member volunteers are needed to organize/sort Sunday, December 6. If you would like to help out… sign up here. Tell your friends, share the flyer!

 

Alternative Giving Opportunity: We ask that you generously donate $5, $10, $18, $20, $25 (or whatever amount you choose) to Or Hadash Tikkun Olam Fund-CAC in support of this ongoing initiative. 


 

Working with the Elderly | During the year, our Rabbi and congregants visit senior residents at The Breman Jewish Home, Huntcliff Summit, Renaissance, Summer's Landing, and Hammond Glen. 

Response to Homelessness | At various times throughout the year, congregants assist at local homeless shelters cooking, serving, schmoozing and occasionally staying overnight. 

Response to Hunger | By working with the Atlanta Community Food Bank, Second Helpings Atlanta, and Jewish Family & Career Services, we continue our efforts to end hunger locally. Congregants can get involved by participating in the Hunger Walk, Passover Food Drive, and Operation Isaiah - Yom Kippur Food Drive (CAC).
