TOPAZ: Tikkun Olam Projects (A-Z)

TOPAZ Mission Statement

TOPAZ (Tikkun Olam Projects from A to Z) creates the focal point for our socially conscious congregation. TOPAZ aims to have an impact on both our congregation and on the greater community by striving to make a difference in our three facets through actions and education.

TOPAZ Facets (Values)

1. Supporting Healthy Households: This facet includes programs that address issues of food security, clothing needs, school needs, and health.

2. Protecting Our Environment: This facet includes programs that address environmental sustainability.

3. Promoting Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion: This facet includes programs and activities impacting equality, inclusion, voting rights and outreach.

TOPAZ Charter

  • TOPAZ recognizes that the three facets are not isolated issues, but impact and influence one another. Topaz’s social action projects will be informed by a social justice lens, reflective of our Jewish values and teachings.
  • TOPAZ will work to strengthen these facets through active involvement of all member units at Har Sinai Oheb Shalom Congregation, whether a member chooses to work on one or many aspects of this initiative.
  • TOPAZ is committed to collaborating with our internal and external partners to address underlying needs within our local and global community.
  • TOPAZ will evolve and adapt, striving to meet the needs that are central to Tikkun Olam, while creating an open and welcoming environment for all.
