Governance

Beyt Tikkun is a Hallachic Community, with Rabbi Michael Lerner as our posek (interpreter of Jewish law). We are committed to the perspectives articulated in two works by Rabbi Michael Lerner:

Jewish Renewal: A Path to Healing and Transformation, and
The Politics of Meaning: Restoring Hope and Possibility in and Age of Cynicism

Our understanding of Jewish law is shaped by the evolving interpretations of our tradition which have been dramatically influenced by wisdom from Jewish feminism, other spiritual traditions, and by struggling to make Judaism a living reality in their our lives. Our intention is to maximize our capacity for mutual recognition and our ability to sustain loving and caring relationships.

Beyt Tikkun has a Coordinating Committee whose members provide advice and support to Rabbi Lerner in the ongoing conduct of the operations of the Congregation. The Coordinating Committee, consisting of members of the Congregation, have been responsible for the presentation of the activities throughout the year with the support of other volunteers from the Congregation. In addition, there is a Board of Directors which supervises Beyt Tikkun's finances and makes legal reports to the State of California.
