Doing the Work Together
Change can happen when each of us commits to doing something with our time and resources for the sake of tikkun olam (repairing the world). Our tradition gives us a blueprint: na’aseh v’nishma, we must act and we must learn. At PAS, we believe that service and education are powerful tools for healing the world. Whether we are meeting the challenges of global warming or addressing the effects of racism, all of us have a role to play. There are so many ways to get involved. The below are just a few of our suggestions! We add new ones regularly, and we’d love to hear your thoughts as well. Feel free to email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
