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.
