Tikkun Olam is the social action concept in Judaism of repairing the world. The Young Adult Division of United Jewish Federation of Tidewater’s Hands on Tidewater ‘HoT’ programming meets multiple times a year to volunteer throughout Hampton Roads. This past year, the ‘HoT’ group packaged food at the Food Bank of Southeastern Virginia and volunteered at Beth Sholom Village with the patients during their Trivia Night.

‘HoT’ emphasizes that it is the social responsibility of UJFT’s young adults to fulfill Tikkun Olam—these small acts of giving back to make a difference towards the greater good.

Next month, Hands on Tidewater will meet at First Landing State Park for a beach cleanup. Jessica Ruthenberg, ‘HoT’ chair, will lead the group to make the designated space free from garbage and unsafe items.

All supplies and material for the cleanup will be waiting for the group to get to work. ‘Hot’ invites all young adults, ages 22-40 to participate, along with their children.
