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.

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. 

 

We had an incredible turn out for Sunday's MLK Jr. Day food drive supporting the CAC (Community Assistance Center) in Sandy Springs.

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).
