During this global Covid-19 pandemic, all of us have been impacted in unique and challenging ways. Because of systemic racism that is embedded throughout our society, the novel coronavirus strain is hitting black communities the hardest. Tikkun Central’s Racial Justice Initiative is already committed to promoting purchases from Black-owned businesses and we recognize the unique challenges of safely accessing goods and services in these times. We invite you to explore our virtual shuk (marketplace) and align your spending with your values as we support local Black business owners. From contactless food deliveries/pick-ups to purchasing books and online meditation and exercise classes, find what you need here!
