Tikkun Olam

Supporting our local community through advocacy and service


Every year from Purim to Passover, NVHC Change (the Social Action Committee) holds the Tikkun Olam Campaign to raise funds for the organizations we support and for our social action activities. But you can donate all year long!

Our country suffers from inequality.  COVID-19 has amplified its effects, disproportionately afflicting those who have less with illness, unemployment, and hunger   We who have more can help through NVHC’s annual Tikkun Olam (Repair the World) campaign—our only fundraiser of the year for social action.  This campaign allows us both to help those in need and to demonstrate NVHC’s commitment to the well-being of our local community.

Help NVHC Help Our Local Community

Contributions to the Tikkun Olam campaign go to outside organizations, not to NVHC.  These organizations, both interfaith and Jewish, assist those in need and advocate for humanitarian and Jewish causes.  Contributions to the Tikkun  Olam campaign also go to support our volunteer activities, such as making meals for the shelters.

Why Help Our Local Community through NVHC?

When we combine our resources, we make a bigger impact.  Furthermore, donating through NVHC, rather than individually, makes NVHC and our Jewish community visible, allowing us to be counted among the faith organizations that care for our local community.

Why Now?  What’s Meaningful about the Time between Purim and Passover?

In the Purim story, human beings perform God’s work–Esther and Mordecai stand up to tyranny and save their people.  In the Passover story, God guides the Jewish people, with Moses as their leader, from slavery to freedom.  These stories inspire us to support our neighbors in their struggle against the tyranny of want and to advocate for a fairer, more just, freer, and more equal society.

For the past three years, NVHC members have met or exceeded the Tikkun Olam campaign’s target ($36,000 last year).  Please enable us to achieve that goal again this year so that we can do our part to help repair our world.

GOAL FOR OUR SPRING 2021 CAMPAIGN: $36,000. Thank you for helping us exceed our goal. We raised over $46,000! We are happy to accept your donations to the Tikkun Olam Fund all year long.
