Tikkun Olam and Community Service

Community service is a cornerstone of the Hill
Havurah.


Our tikkun olam (“repair of the world”) activities
include donating Thanksgiving baskets, holiday
gifts 
and other supplies to homeless families
through the Capitol Hill Group Ministry, a local
nonprofit service organization.  We also carry
out outreach efforts to 
street homeless persons
and homebound seniors on Christmas Day.

At other times we donate food to local food
pantries and school supplies to 
children who 
need them., and e
very month, Havurah members prepare and serve hot meals to homeless
neighbors at Church of the Brethren's Nutrition
Center.
