Your Jewish Journey Starts Here.

Tikkun Olam

Tikkun Olam Team

 

Congregation Brith Shalom has begun a new initiative, the Tikkun Olam Team, whose purpose it is to enable congregants to come together to do community service projects.  Our hope is to have projects which continue throughout the year.

According to the Torah, all human beings are created in God’s image.  As Jews, when we assist those in need, we enable the spark of God within each person to be illuminated and bring Godliness into our world.  All are invited to be a part of this holy task.

 

The world stands on three things: on Torah, on the service of God, and on acts of lovingkindess.

Pirkei Avot 1:2

Calendar

 

As part of our new Tikkun Olam Initiative, Congregation Brith Shalom will be conducting collections benefitting local charitable organizations.  Each month, we ask you to consider donating specific items in the Tzedakah Box in our lobby, which will be collected and delivered to the designated organization.

Run for the Rose

Brith Shalom has formed a team to participate in the 15th Annual Run for the Rose.  We encourage everyone to register to join us for this 5k walk around NRG park on Sunday April 2 or to donate to support the team.  Funds raised support the mission of the Dr. Marnie Rose Foundation which is to eradicate brain cancer through the funding of research at The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center.

We walk together in loving memory of our friend, Bob Hurtte and other Brith Shalom members whose lives have been impacted by brain cancer.
