In 2013, Washington Hebrew Congregation established the Tikkun Olam Values (TOV) Fund to make a positive difference in the lives of the underserved and underprivileged.
At the crossroads of creativity and compassion, TOV - the Hebrew word for "good" - supports and implements programs in pursuit of the prophetic vision of social justice: to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and care for the disenfranchised. Through the generosity of member Fleur Bresler and her family, the good works of the TOV Fund are coordinated in a central social action center at the Temple, the Charles S. Bresler Tikkun Olam Center. This dedicated space serves as the hub for a broad range of work and activities - a place of resources, meetings, and planning. Among the many projects the TOV fund supports is the Acts of Religious Kindness (ARK) initiative of our 2239 auxiliary, and the WHC Hunger Project, which nourishes members of our local community facing food insecurity.
