– Deepen our community’s understanding of the ongoing Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
– Provide a space for rich discussion about strategies for social justice in the Middle East.

The Congregation Tikkun v’Or Justice in Israel-Palestine Committee organizes and supports educational events about the Middle East conflict for members of the temple and broader community.
We believe that working for social justice is a core Jewish value, directly called for in Jewish text, and seen throughout Jewish history.
We proudly claim that the call for social justice has a rightful place in a spiritual community. Such work can and must include speaking out against the oppression of all peoples. Even when the oppressor is a Jew, or a Jewish nation state, we must uphold the call for justice.
On February 20, 2022, Tikkun v’Or hosted a Dialogue on a Just and Sustainable Future for Israel/Palestine, featuring Jonathan Kuttab and Yehezkel Landau. Relevant readings include Can Zionism be Redeemed? by Yehezkel Landau and Beyond the Two State Solution by Jonathan Kuttab.
