Tikkun Olam in Our Community

KJA supports and coordinates support for many programs in our community to embrace the Jewish value of tikkun olam – repair of our world.  We participate in Family Promise, an interfaith program that provides temporary housing, meals, and assistance to situationally homeless families in order to help them become self- sufficient.  We collect food and other items for veterans, Second Harvest food bank, Susannah’s House, and other local organizations. This year the Arnstein Jewish Community Center was home to a community garden!  With garden beds spaced to allow for safe social distancing, gardeners helped grow food for donation at Susannah’s House and Family Promise.
