About the Tikkun Olam Board

Kehilat Nitzan strives to combine in its activities the three pillars upon which the world stands: Torah (study), avodah (ritual), and gemilut chasadim (acts of loving-kindness). The term Tikkun Olam means “repairing the world” and is a general phrase that refers to social justice and improving the community.

Our Tikkun Olam Board is a committed group of volunteers providing oversight to a variety of programs that promote the concept of gemilut chasadim in its broadest sense. These programs include support for members of our own kehilah (community) as well as providing aid and working for social justice within both the Jewish and the wider Australian communities, and encouraging interfaith dialogue.

The Tikkun Olam Board meets every month to review current programs and discuss new ideas. To get involved, email Fran Feldman.

Long-standing programs include our Nitzanim Singers and the Food Van.

Food for mourners provides a pre-packaged meal to members in mourning. Our volunteers deliver (Sunday to Thursday). To join the roster, email Fran Feldman.
