Who We Are : About Us


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, TOV connects members of the Jewish community with rewarding volunteer opportunities that best meet their interests and needs.

TOV launched in 1997 to satisfy the Jewish communities’ thirst for volunteerism and began connecting people to on-going and one-time volunteer opportunities throughout Chicagoland.

Over the years, TOV has expanded its programming as it’s adapted to the needs of the community and has become a premier provider of first rate volunteer programming. Our dedicated TOV staff make volunteering easy by providing a variety of ways to get involved from seasonal one-time events, to ongoing, interest-based opportunities, to programming for specific peer groups, and everything in between.

Join TOV in repairing the world, one good deed at a time.
