Tikkun Olam Circle

The Tikkun Olam Circle has changed a lot over the years and has taken on different forms. Currently, we serve as the strategic umbrella for the individual Justice Chavurahs below. Occasionally TOC takes on special projects, like that of sponsoring an Afghan refugee family or making meals at Room at the Inn. Volunteer projects and opportunities can be found on our Volunteer page. Click the link below to see when we're meeting next.
