Tikkun Olam – is a Hebrew phrase literally meaning to “repair the world”. Some people interpret these words to mean a call for “social justice”. And then there are others who feel certain that Tikkun Olam is a call to action – within ones’ own heart.
To me Tikkun Olam means that we need to stop and just breathe. A time to reflect on what is good in this world and try to make better what is going wrong. Time to help feed the hungry, give aid to a family in need or other small acts of kindness – within our own communities. Tikkun Olam means we give of our time – not just our money.
