Tikkun Olam - repairing the world

Inspired by our ancestors' bravery in the face of injustice and our hope to leave the next generations a promising future, we heed our tradition’s call to seek peace, pursue justice, and care for all of creation. Leading and collaborating in our region, we cultivate relationships of care for our neighbors, fellow Jews, Israel, and all peoples that translate ethical tradition into action.

Here are some of the ways our community engages:

Housing Task Force - committed to helping the Lamoille Community House raise money for the Raise the Roof campaign to relocate the only homeless shelter in the county.

JCOGS Rainbow Coalition for the LGBTQ+ community - At JCOGS, everyone is welcome. We support diversity through initiatives such as Pride Shabbat and participation in the annual Vermont Pride Parade among other initiatives.

Green Team for sustainability - Supporting a greener world at JCOGS and in our community. We grow food in our Mitzvah Garden and operate our building with sustainable practices.
