18+ Relief Missions

Step into the world of OU Relief Missions-18+…

A world where the timeless Jewish value of chessed (acts of loving-kindness) and tikkun olam (repairing the world) come to life.  

Our doors are open to a diverse tapestry of individuals – from college students to retirees, even synagogue members to community champions. No matter your background or experience, you’re invited to embark on a journey that transcends self and reaches out to others. 

Imagine the power of adults uniting, driven by a shared purpose: to leave an indelible mark on the lives of those in need. Through our relief missions, participants gain a fresh perspective that ignites a passion for making a difference that extends beyond themselves. They become agents of change, stepping out of their comfort zones to stand on the front lines of recovery after times of destruction like natural disasters and social injustice. 

But it’s more than just lending a helping hand. It’s about embodying the true spirit of tikkun olam, healing the world through genuine acts of kindness, and being a Kiddush Hashem in a world plagued with anti-Semitism. As participants extend their hearts and hands, they find a renewed yearning to assist those in the midst of hardship and show the world the true essence of the Jewish people. 

Together, we will walk hand in hand with communities scarred by natural disasters and navigate the challenges of low socio-economic conditions. 

Through these experiences, we don’t just speak of Jewish values – we live them. As a collective force, we embody the essence of chessed and tikkun olam, infusing hope, healing, and love into every corner we touch.
