As Jews, we are reminded time and again of our obligation to, and the benefit of, helping others. Tikkun Olam — Repair the World. It is at the core of who we are as Reform Jews. There is no required way in which we are supposed to accomplish it, but we are implored to do our part. For generations, Washington Hebrew Congregation and its members have actively embraced this charge to repair the world. Institutionally and individually, we continually make a difference.Read More  ➔
