Tikkun Olam means to repair the world through social action. Though we can never make the world completely whole, we are involved in many kinds of social action. Our programs benefit food pantries and homeless and lonely residents of Wausau. Mt. Sinai is also part of a coalition of Wausau congregations engaged in congregationally based community organizing. We invite our members to join in any of these acts of Tikkun Olam. By reaching out to people in need, we not only help to repair the world, but also strengthen our Jewish identity and provide an important example of our values for our children.
