The Tikkun Olam Volunteer (TOV) Network is JUF's connection point for people who want to donate their time to help others in need. In accordance with tikkun olam, the Jewish concept of repairing the world one good deed at a time, TOV places members of the Jewish community with Jewish United Fund/Jewish Federation affiliated agencies and with community service projects that need volunteers.
Whether you are interested in volunteering once a week or once a year, in the city or in the suburbs, with the elderly or with children, by tutoring or by serving food to the homeless, TOV's volunteer advisors will work hard to find the best match to meet your needs and interests.
What's Happening @ TOV?
Volunteer with your family to help children in need and give back to the community through this hands-on volunteer experience. PJ Shares will bring together families for fun activities with a big impact as they work together to help assemble care packages, work on a bedtime craft, make cards, and more to donate to families of Chai Lifeline. Entertainer Paddy Lynn will present an interactive storyacting session about sharing. This program is proudly presented in partnership with TOV, PJ Library, and Chicago Jewish Day School (CJDS). Learn more and RSVP today!
Give thanks by giving back this holiday season and volunteer through Winter Mitzvah Mania. Projects run from November 17, 2013 - January 5, 2014.
The pro bono attorneys who donate their time to helping the clients of JUF's Community Legal Services clinic were honored on June 27 by TOV.
