Repairing the World/Tikkun Olam

Home » Repairing the World/Tikkun Olam

Tikkun Olam (social activism, or literally “world repair”) is an attempt to repair  breaches of justice in our  world. Tikkun olam is a central wellspring of spirituality and meaning for many contemporary Jews. The Reconstructionist movement has helped define the vanguard of social justice in the Jewish community, advancing causes from equality for women and LGBTQIA  folks, to policy-shifting advocacy work in multi-racial, interfaith coalitions. The centrality of working for social justice was part of Mordecai Kaplan’s earliest vision for Reconstructionism, and it continues to be a central pillar for our work in the world and in our approach to Jewish life.
