                                             Tikkun Olam

Tikkun Olam is the social action arm of Temple Beth Abraham. Tikkun Olam, literally means, “to heal the world.” The mission of TBA’s Tikkun Olam team is to inform, engage, and mobilize our members to build a better world. We do this globally and locally, as Jews, as citizens, and as members of the global community. Projects include donating to a local food pantry, bringing food and supplies to homeless people in NYC, helping to rebuilding communities hit by natural disasters, and coming together to perform mitzvot. We hope, with these and other acts of Tikkun Olam, we can help make the world a better place.

The co-chairs of the Tikkun Olam team are Julia Gosset and Tracy Ostroff.  You may reach them at

We meet about once a month on Sundays at 9:15AM in the TBA Library.
