TIKKUNFEST – Repairing The World One Block At A Time
Posted by rabbiyonah
Jewish Social Action Month Meets Jewlicious Meets LA
We recently were the benefactors of a very generous grant from the Jewish Community Foundation Los Angeles (a massive post on this is in the works). Thanks to their generosity, we have been able to expand the offerings of Jewlicious in Los Angeles, including this past August’s Camp Jewlicious.
This month Jewlicious is launching TIKKUNFEST, a day of community service and social action culminating in a free concert for volunteers. Volunteers will spread out over 18 blocks of Pico Blvd. – aka The Chood – planting fruit trees and herb gardens in custom made planters, painting stuff, cleaning up garbage, repairing stuff, collecting clothing and food for the needy at registration, assisting seniors with stuff, a few other projects and promoting community involvement.
TIKKUNFEST is in support of Jewish Social Action Month and The LA Green Mile. The LA Green Mile began a few years ago to help clean up the section of Pico Blvd that runs through the most thriving part of Jewish LA.
How to get involved? Its easy! Volunteers just register here, and show up on game-day. You will get a free t-shirt and a concert at a local venue with an amazing band (details soon!)
You can also be a contributor by sponsoring a planter, or supplies, the concert, and the food. You can dedicate a tree or herb garden in honor or memory of someone and we will be putting plaques on the planters, and all sponsorships and donations are tax-deductible!
Your organization can come out for the day and be a part of a great project – email us for more info! firstname.lastname@example.org
TIKKUNFEST is sponsored by The Jewish Community Foundation Los Angeles, powered by JConnect, and with a growing list of co-sponsors and partners including: Progressive Jewish Alliance • JConnectLA • Uri L’Tzedek • Repair The World
Hope to see you on October 24th!
