Brit Olam - Covenant With Our World

Brit Olam translates to 'Covenant With Our Word.: The Brit Olam reminds us of the words from Pirkei Avot: "Study alone is not enough, our tradition demands action."

In 2017, we introduced the Brit Olam, our covenant to create a world in which all people experience wholeness, justice, and compassion. Since then, the urgency of our work has only grown.

We are doing things together.
