Tikkun Olam—Putting Head, Hands, and Heart into Jewish Social Action
Congregation Ner Tamid’s history includes our ever-present commitment to making the world a better place. The Jewish concept is called “tikkun olam,” which means “repair of the world,” and for Ner Tamid making life better in our little corner of the world is a deeply held priority.
Over the years congregants have come together to bring light and hope to those who need it most. From migrant families to cancer survivors, Ner Tamid members and friends have been at the ready to lend a helping hand.
Consistency of commitment and dedication to purpose characterize Ner Tamid’s efforts, most especially our relationships with the Sarasota-Manatee Jewish Family and Children’s Services and a ten year record of serving Christmas and Easter dinner to homeless men, women and children at Bradenton’s charitable food program, “Our Daily Bread.”
Coming home to Ner Tamid means embracing community, both within the synagogue and in the world outside. Along with other dedicated Jews, we’ll help you put your head, your hands and your heart into projects that will enhance your sense of purpose in your own life as your bring love, and light to vulnerable members of our community—those who need you most.
