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.

    Hill Havurah and Reformation Community Building Event:
    Sunday, Aug 26th 11:30a to 1:30p
    Please join us on Sunday, 7/15/2018 at 11:30 am in the Parish Hall of Lutheran Church of the Reformation as leaders and members from Hill Havurah and Reformation get together to discuss our individual missions and our future as a connected community. As active congregations on Capitol Hill, Reformation and Hill Havurah share so much: our commitment to the community, our commitment to our members and the growth of our congregations, and even our worship and educational spaces! Please join us as we enter into a series of conversations focused on our faith partnership. Throughout this year, we plan to explore topics related to our congregations' use of shared space and community mission, interfaith relationships and growth, and overcoming the challenging history between Lutheranism and Judaism. Our first conversation (dedicated to community building, shared and differing missions, and our long term partnership between our congregations) will begin at 11:30am at Reformation on Sunday 7/15/2018. We would like to have a potluck lunch in addition to our conversation so if you would like to attend, please contact leah.wolfthal@hillhavurah.org to officially RSVP and sign up to bring a dish to contribute. Thank you all and we look forward to connecting with you.
