Tikkun Olam

The CY Tikun Olam Social Action Committee held our first Tikun Olam potluck featuring a local organization doing mitzvah work in the community. The event was a huge success. There were approximately 30 people in attendance, half were CY members and half were members of our host location, Walnut Commons. Our guest was Chip from the Santa Cruz Downtown Association, who came to share about the amazing new program he is hoping to bring to town. "Streets Team" is a program that seeks to engage homeless and low-income residents to do beautification projects around downtown. In exchange, they are given vouchers for housing, food, etc. Streets Team has been a big success in other communities. Sin
