Tikkun Olam is a Judaic concept that many are familiar with. It literally means to heal, repair, and transform the world. It embodies the Jewish commitment to fairness, social justice, and freedom. While this definition is correct and compelling, what many do not know is the long history and development of this concept. Come join Rabbi Ezray in studying the biblical, rabbinic, and mystical roots of this concept and how that understanding renews the ways we can practice and understand tikkun olam in our personal lives.
