Congregation Tikkun v’Or (Ithaca Reform Temple) is a vibrant congregation that strives for a warm personal bond among its members, quality education for the children, and a dynamic program for adults. We welcome those from diverse backgrounds, interfaith families, LGBTQ families, people who are newly discovering Jewish connections, as well as those with a wide range of Jewish experiences.

Our core values are best expressed by three words:

Spirit / Community / Justice

The Board at Tikkun v’Or joins with the voices of the local and national groups that are outraged by the endless killing of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous, and People of Color) in our country, most recently the tragic deaths of George Floyd, Ahmaud Arbery, and Breonna Taylor. We can never tolerate this injustice, nor can we stand in silence while our elected officials and law enforcement support White Supremacy.

Tikkun v’Or’s commitment to Spirit, Community, and Justice compels us to ask each person in our community to act in some way that voices our resistance to the status quo.

We will be having a community conversation in the near future. In the meantime, here are a few things we can do today, from our own homes, to protest racial injustice:


Our sages taught (Berachot 32b) that we are obligated to protect our health as it says, “take care and guard your life (nefesh)” (Deuteronomy 4:9)

ALL TIKKUN V’OR SERVICES, MEETINGS, PROGRAMS, and CLASSES are now taking place on-line. Join us for Tuesday morning services and conversations, and Shabbat evening or morning services, including candle lighting, singing, meditation, and Torah study.

Check the calendar or ask to be added to our email list for times and links.
