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, and all of us have a role to play.
