Tikkun Olam (Repairing the World) is a basic tenet in Judaism that Makom participants experience by engaging in activities that support and put into action this concept in a number of actual ways in the community. Working at a food bank, building a new home for a family without proper shelter, participating in walks for organizations that do fundraising and research for illnesses and diseases, etc. represent just of a few of the activities in which Makom engages.
We look for ways to help our own Long Island community, by feeding the hungry, providing for the poor, bringing cheer to the elderly, cooking for the food shelters, shopping for families in need, working with children with special needs and so much more.
One of our goals as a new community is to get to know our greater Long Island community and to give back in ways that are meaningful and important.
We have already collected boxes of new toys that were donated to the INN in Hempstead, a soup kitchen and food and other pantry; collected canned goods for a local food pantry, and will soon be bringing cheer to the elderly in a Nursing Home and serving food in a local soup kitchen.
