This network will focus on aspects of weaving together the work of tikkun olam and one’s spiritual life. From a Jewish perspective, we are always called to tikkun in the times of our lives. Our current times have brought with them an intensified level of challenge in the realm of social, environmental, economic and racial justice. We will explore Jewish perspectives, spiritual approaches and best practices of our day to live the deep call to tikkun hanefesh v’olam— the repair/balancing/integration of one’s own soul and the world we are part of. Whether your focus is on mindfulness meditation, prayer and ritual, community organizing, marches or lobbying, will work on the integrative Jewish approach to a healthy and balanced life and a more just, equitable and sustainable world.
