Tikkun (Social Action)

Tikkun Olam

Our tikkun olam committee meets in the fall to review their budget and decide what organizations to support. They have developed a rubric to help them prioritize the many worthy causes and organizations in our area and elsewhere.


Our primary focus is on local organizations, though in some years we’ve been able to donate to international organizations as well.
In considering local organizations we tended to favor organizations that would give us “exposure” in the community, although this was not the only factor.  We do not consider charities promoting another religion. In fact, Jewish organizations do not tend to promote Judaism.  Under these guidelines we have allocated funds (not the same each year) for such organizations as:


International: Mazon (food for the hungry in Israel), American Jewish World Service, Genocide No More; Save Darfur


Local: Crop Walk, Women’s Refuge, People of Progress, Shasta County Library, Redding Police (canine unit, bicycles for kids), 1st Five Shasta, Redding War Chest (food bank distribution), Redding Symphony


We are always open to suggestions, but members should be aware that although we get matching funds from a generous member our budget is limited. 


Suggestions can be made through the TBI email: ShalomTBI@gmail.com
