Tikkun Olam is a phrase that means “repairing the world” (or “healing the world”) which suggests our community’s shared responsibility to heal, repair and transform the world for the better. The Tikkun Olam committee at Am Haskalah seeks to find opportunities to pair our holidays, events, and learning opportunities with social action projects. We have collected food items for local food banks and the Lehigh Valley’s Homeless Children’s Initiative. We are always looking for good ideas, projects and ways to coordinate social action in our community.

A person feels good about themselves when they accomplish something. We feel happy when we feel good about ourselves. So how can we have a happy year?

By engaging in acts of love and kindness, we ensure our happiness for the coming year. This year, 5774 let us feel good by doing good.
