Kol Ami — The Northern Virginia Reconstructionist Community
Kol Ami members are committed to practicing Tikkun Olam/repairing the world both in our individual lives and as a community. Throughout the year, our community engages in group Tikkun Olam activities, including a community-wide High Holidays effort. Representative projects include collecting household goods for refugees, food drives, preparing and delivering bagged meals to homeless adults, participating in a community clean-up at a neighborhood park, collecting blankets and toiletries for homeless adults, gleaning. and volunteering to help repair homes.
Members are also encouraged to find and share individual Tikkun Olam activities. We support members’ Tikkun Olam projects that they are interested in leading. We focus on projects where members can be actively involved and the work addresses a local need. It is an honor to participate in the Jewish tradition of helping to repair our world and community.
Our High Holiday Project in 2022 is to assist an Afghan Refugee family. Please contribute generously with your time or a donation to the Kol Ami Refugee Engagement.
