Tikkun Olam: Phil Abroms

Tikkun Olam, which means repair the world, is vital to the Jewish culture. It embraces the love of family, giving back to the community. Phil Abroms practices Tikkun Olam. Turn a corner at any event in the Shoals area, and you will find a smile and a camera wielded by Abroms, compelling us to feel his joy. He ‘captures’ everyone he can, whenever he can, and he is an integral part of the fabric of our community.

We asked Abroms to share some of his images, and he is allowing us to experience his love of family and faith through his images of Passover, the Jewish celebration of liberation. While we are blessed to enjoy just a few of the images of Passover at Temple B’nai Israel, Garden Spices also bows in remembrance of the tragedy in the California Synagogue during this eight-day celebration. May the message of Tikkun Olam continue to be reflected by the lens of Phil Abroms. -Victorine
