What Does Tikkun Olam Mean?

Tikkun Olam literally means "repairing the world." The name of our program refers to the biblical commandment that all of mankind should seek to perform acts of tikkun olam and gemilut hasadim (acts of loving kindness). Tikkun Olam in Tel Aviv-Jaffa seeks not only to educate young Jews about these important tenets of Judaism, but to put them into action with social action and grassroots activism in the neediest parts of Tel Aviv-Jaffa.
