Almost two millennia ago, Rabbi Tarfon taught, “You are not required to complete the work, but you cannot abstain from it.”

Looking at the world around us, the brokenness can be overwhelming and paralyzing; but our tradition teaches us that inaction is not an option. We have countless opportunities to do small things that can make a big impact.

Tikkun olam, repairing the world around us, is a core value of Judaism. Helping the needy in our community is an integral part of who we are at Wilshire Boulevard Temple. We strive to bring people together as we engage in meaningful work and experience the pride and warmth of our Jewish community.
