Tikkun Olam (“repairing the world”) is one of the primary Jewish principles that unifies, engages, and motivates the Jewish community. For decades, The Jewish Federation of Greater Los Angeles has been a leader in partnering with agencies to provide direct service to people in need, ensuring our children are taught the Jewish values of tzedakah (“justice”) and chesed (“kindness”), and engaging the LA Jewish community through community service.
We strive to create rich and varied volunteer experiences that educate volunteers on social issues, provide them with the understanding that their actions can make a real difference, and create community through meaningful action and help make Los Angeles a better place.. Through this unique combination of education, action and connection, volunteers are equipped to make community service a valued part of their life. Some of the volunteer opportunities The Federation provides include:
- Community Service Days – Volunteers participate in meaningful and impactful projects that address issues such as poverty, access to food, and environmental sustainability.
- KOREH LA – Volunteers help thousands of children every year learn to read through the most successful volunteer literacy program in Los Angeles.
We hope that you will join us in our mission to make this world a better place!
