We are commanded that “you are not required to complete the work, neither are you free to desist from it” (Rabbi Tarfon, Pirkei Avot 2:21). Tikkun olam or ‘repairing the world’ is the responsibility of each and every one of us, and a fundamental Jewish principle. Our volunteers contribute enormously to creating our community of belonging for which TBI has become so well known.
We trust that you will see this Volunteer Kit as our way of responding to your enthusiasm, partnering with you to continue your work, so that together we can provide meaning and joy in belonging to all that makes up the Temple Beth Israel of which we are so proud.
