Temple values Tikkun Olam.Translated, Tikkun Olam means the healing and repairing of the world – a communal obligation of the Jewish people.The mission of Tikkun Olam at Temple De Hirsch Sinai is to fully engage the membership of our synagogue in the sacred work of repairing our world through the performance of ma'asim tovim (good deeds). Members of all ages are invited to participate in a variety of social action projects throughout the year.
