Irving J. Fain Awards

Brit Olam - Covenant With Our World

Two years ago, we introduced the Brit Olam, our covenant to create a world in which all people experience wholeness, justice, and compassion. The Brit Olam work encompasses multiple ways to join a network of congregations working together toward a common goal. Your group may choose to join a RAC state project, an issue-based cohort, or both. In this way, each individual action can amplify and increase the impact of all others.

Holiday Guides

The Jewish holidays are significant celebrations of the history and traditions of the Jewish people, and offer an important opportunity to reflect on the enduring Jewish value of tikkun olam, world repair.
