Derech Adat


Derech Adat is a multifaceted effort at Adat Ari El to engage in Tikkun Olam on all meaningful levels. Through using our hands, our intellect, and our resources, we make a priority of identifying injustices in our world and working in partnership with our broader community to right them. From debating and taking positions on issues that need to be addressed in society to serving our community with volunteer outreach, we take our commitments to repairing our world seriously. We strongly believe that acts of love can overcome acts of ignorance and hate and as a unified community, Derech Adat is the way we express that sentiment.
